A man stumbled through her doorway. "We got us one, boys " he yelled, waving his rifle in the air and dragging his captives into the cold night.

"Once a kidnapped slave baby, George Washington Carver found freedom in learning everything he could about the world around him. Overcoming poverty and racism, George became a brilliant scientist and a gifted professor who dedicated his expertise to helping black farmers escape the devastating grip of poverty.
