Chapter 13 documents the conference of Washington’s National Afro-American Council (NAAC) that was held in St. Paul, 1902, organized by McGhee. What was intended to be his springboard to national prominence turned instead into a “defining moment” when McGhee became disillusioned with the Wizard of Tuskegee.
