George Washington Carver

George Washington Carver had a very rough beginning in life but he pushed himself to get an education and to excel. Because of this he was able to serve his country, the American people, and the African American community with distinction. You will find books about other famous African American people in the Biographies section and in the Black History Month Feature.
