From, Old Tuskegee

Everyone knows Tuskegee has molded many of a great mind, like George Washington Carver‘s, Albert Murray‘s and Ralph Ellison‘s. What is less known about ‘Skegee is that it had a top notch culinary and hospitality program, that sent its graduates all around the world even West Africa before it was fashionable to go there. I will look into making a more in depth post. But for now here is a picture of one of its graduates, a young Octoroon setting a table.
