George Washington Carver

Portrayed by Keith Henley

George Washington Carver, better known as the Peanut Man, was the inventor responsible for redeveloping the southern crop industry after the Civil War. His sought alternative crops to cotton during the boll weevil blight in the 1920s, and his discoveries with  peanuts, sweet potato, and soy beans, changed the southern crop industry.  His ideas influenced farmers both here at home and countries abroad for many years. Carver was a man of strong religious beliefs and of great tenacity.

in his interpretation, Henley discusses the power of faith, and reveals the strong will and determination of Carver.
