Description

George Washington Carver has long been revered for his contributions to improving the lives of poor Southern farmers. Carver studied to be a scientist at a time when many black Americans could not afford, or were turned away from, universities. He went on to do research at the famed Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, where he became one of the most popular teachers at the school. Carver's efforts were often mythologized, but there is no denying the fact that his work benefited many people. ""George Washington Carver: Scientist and Inventor"" tells the true story of the man who became a legend in his field.
