The medal's obverse design features a bust portrait of Booker T. Washington, an American educator, author, orator, and advisor to presidents of the United States. The reverse design features two African-American men wearing nothing but pants. One stands while the other sits on a stack of books. A series of small buildings are pictured to the men's proper lower right while a larger building is pictured at their proper upper left. The men look to their proper right.
