  • This first episode in the acclaimed children's TV series "WonderWorks" tells the inspirational true story of Booker T. Washington and his family. The Washingtons had to bear many hardships as black Americans living in the American south before the end of slavery. Although it was illegal for slaves to learn to read, nine-year-old Booker already realized just how important books were; and he became determined to master this skill. Two people who played an important role in Booker's education were the white schoolteacher who recited poetry to him, and a black Union Army veteran who helped teach the youngster how to read. The program follows Booker and his family as they passed from slavery into free Americans at the end of the Civil War.
