This statue was commissioned by Booker T. Washington High School’s principal, Charles Lincoln Harper, in 1927. The statue is the only duplicate of the original, which stands on the grounds of Tuskegee University and the Tuskegee Institute National Historic Site. The statue of Washington has an inscription that reads: "He lifted the veil of ignorance from his people and pointed the way to progress through education and industry."
