Booker T. Washington was the first Principal, (President) of the school, now known as Tuskegee University. Considered by many the "Founder", he was in fact, the great "Builder" of Tuskegee University. Lewis Adams, however, was the cause operating before the school came into being. He was the one whose action gave rise to the school that Booker T. Washington first led and built; hence Lewis Adams can be justly called the true "Founder" of Tuskegee University. This play tells his story.
