KIRKUS REVIEW

The Story of the SS Booker T. Washington, this tells of the Liberty ship whose Captain is a Negro, and of the spirit of true democracy the ship and her crew personified. Through the life stories of the men, this is a vivid picture of the possibilities of human brotherhood, as prejudice and discrimination are combatted by all the crew -- in theory and actual practice. Group pride and group achievement contributed to the success of the ""experiment"" of sending out a mixed crew. Interesting material.
