FROM the very beginning, at Tuskegee, I wasdetermined to have the students do not onlythe agricultural and domestic work, but tohave them erect their own buildings. My plan wasto have them, while performing this service, taughtthe latest and best methods of labour, so that theschool would not only get the benefit of their efforts,but the students themselves would be taught to seenot only utility in labour, but beauty and dignity;would be taught, in fact, how to lift labour up frommere drudgery and toil, and would learn to lovework for its own sake. My plan was not to teachthem to work in the old way, but to show them howto make the forces of nature - air, water, steam,electricity, horse-power - assist them in their labour.
