Summary:
(c. 1864-1943) This compelling biography details the life of botanist George Washington Carver. Born into slavery during the waning months of the Civil War, Carver was a curious child who developed a strong interest in plant life. He studied agriculture at Iowa State and later became head of the agricultural school at Alabama's Tuskegee Institute, where he developed agricultural methods that would benefit even the poorest farmers. A creative chemist, Carver captured national attention by finding hundreds of new uses for peanuts, sweet potatoes and other crops. His life was dedicated to the betterment of African Americans in the South, teaching them about crop rotation, fertilizers and improving depleted soils. Part of the Black Americans of Achievement Video Collection that celebrates the most influential African Americans in history.

Only available in the US.
