Should Washington State's flag be redesigned to have Booker T. Washington's likeness instead of George Washington?
Booker T. has no connection with WA state.
was born in Virginia and developed his career and education in West Virginia and Alabama.
Even with no connection to WA, Booker’s work for the betterment of African American’s lives should be recognized.
Replacing George Washington for Booker T. Washington is a symbolic gesture, not a specific one tied to WA state.
George Washington himself has virtually no ties to Washington state, a territory that became American half a century after his death.
