CultureSOUL: George Washington Carver 

A scientist, botanist and educator born into slavery in 1864, Mr. Carver is considered one of America’s greatest inventors. His achievements include his groundbreaking botanical research to provide alternative crops to cotton such as peanuts and sweet potatoes. As his wiki page notes, “He wanted poor farmers to grow alternative crops both as a source of their own food and as a source of other products to improve their quality of life.” 

Here George Washington Carver (Center) sits with his fellow staff members at the Tuskegee Institute in 1902.
