Meet the inventors and scientists of color who changed the world!

Born enslaved during the Civil War in Diamond, Missouri, George Washington Carver was an agricultural scientist and inventor.

It is time to remember how George Washington Carver's inventions and his contributions changed our society… and our world!

With a vivid writing style that will use humor as one of its primary ingredients, and illustrated with a combination of real photos and pictures featuring graphic art, each title in this series will describe how these heroes of diverse backgrounds faced the challenges of their times, and how their inventions and contributions changed our society.
