Though born a slave, Washington attended the Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute in Virginia, working as a janitor before graduating to join the Institute’s staff. In 1881 he became the first president of the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute in Alabama, now Tuskegee University. Washington was not a Unitarian, but some Unitarians did help advance the work he did at Tuskegee.
