His journey was extraordinary: though born a slave, by the end of his life, presidents and corporate titans valued his friendship. Millions of Americans benefited from his innovations. His scientific genius is legendary, but less known is his remarkable path to greatness, defined by a life-long passion for serving others.

Though Carver was most known for his work discovering uses for the peanut, he also did much more to help shape the American landscape than is often realized at a surface glance.
