Faith Bigger Than a Peanut

In recognition of Black History Month, documentary celebrates George Washington Carver

Long before he earned fame as a scientist and for his work with peanuts, George Washington Carver had endured slavery and the reconstruction era as a man of Christian faith.

His story is told in a new documentary, George Washington Carver: An Uncommon Way, now available on DVD.

"Carver's greatest overlooked contribution . . . was his love and appreciation for creation and creativity," says Dr. Voddie Baucham Jr., who narrates the film. "He was a true scientist who was more than a lab coat and a microscope."
