    Are you asking about Booker T. Washington or Washington, D.C. or George Washington?

    Most people accepted segregation because it was the law in some states. It was an ingrained custom for both whites and blacks, and customs are hard to break.

    For instance, in the early 60s I overheard a white owner of a fabric shop in a northern city express her fears that if she hired an African-American clerk, that she'd lose her white customers. That was the conventional wisdom among many people at that time.

    Booker T. Washington, as many leaders, believed that change came slowly. It wasn't effective to agitate for rapid changes.
