Lifting the Veil of Ignorance Monument: Tribute to Booker T Washington

The Lifting the Veil of Ignorance Monument is located on the campus of Tuskegee University (Tuskegee, Alabama) unveiled and dedicated on April 15, 1922. Over 100,000 people attended and paid tribute to the founder of Tuskegee University, Booker T. Washington. Created by sculptor Charles Keck, the bronze monument portrays Booker T. Washington lifting the veil of ignorance off his people, symbolized by a terrified slave, and pointing the way to progress and a better life through education.
