Booker T. Washington spoke to Shreveport, Louisiana, residents about racial reconciliation in 1911 and a second time in 1915, when a crowd of over 10,000 people came to see him. Shreveport’s population at that time was only about 20,000. Professor Gary Joiner talked about the reception of the speeches and Mr. Washington’s place in the history of civil rights. Professor Joiner was interviewed where the 1911 speech took place, in front of the Caddo Parish Courthouse.

Several photographs were shown, as well as film clips from the 1915 motion picture The Birth of a Nation.
