Storyboard Text

  • George W. Carver was born as a slave around 1864 and he passed away in 1943.
  • When you do common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world
  • Fear of something is at the root of hate for others, and the hate within will eventually destroy the hater.
  • George Washington Carver was born around 1864 even though his exact birth date is unknown. He became the most popular for his agriculture innovations. He taught and headed the agriculture department at Booker T. Washington all-black Tuskegee Institute. But in 1920 he stopped working there. While he was working there he grew fond of many different plants especially peanuts. They were an excellent source of protein and did not deplete the soil nearly as much as, the common cash crop, cotton.
  • He earned the nickname of the "Peanut Man" by the Growers Association that was after his famous testimony at a tariff hearing. This Testimony became well publicly known afterwards and all throughout 1921. Mr. Carver helped the idea of interracial cooperation at white campuses and the YMCA. He never really developed his own product but he made the life of sharecroppers a lot easier in his early years and he became a huge inspiration of African American Achievement in his later years.
