George Washington Carver, the man

Born into slavery in 1864, George Washington Carver became a master of chemistry, botany, music, art, cooking and nutrition, and more. He was known as an innovative scientist, teacher, symbol of interracial understanding, and a great man of God. He is best known for his research and developments with peanuts and soybeans, resulting in a multitude of new uses for those plants and new hope for poor southern farmers.
