I always knew there was something missing from history but didn't know what. Though it didn't alter my faith. Now this program was so enlightening and informative, some of the things I felt but had no proof. Now there is proof! Let's not lose this truth, yes there are evil people of every color but not to worry justice and good will eventually prevail. Keep The Faith (Posted on 3/29/2009)

Description

Details

You probably remember that George Washington Carver invented over 300 uses for peanut butter. Did you know that while at Tuskegee Institute he became one of the world's foremost experts in horticulture?

In fact, George Washington Carver almost single-handedly reinvented land management in the South following the ravages of too much cotton and tobacco farming. He was so brilliant that Henry Ford and Thomas Edison tried to hire him, but he said no. Do you know why?

Because he wasn't after fame or fortune. The most important thing in George Washington Carver's life was that he was a Christian. He simply marveled at God's creation and wanted to help all mankind.

When you get this 2-part DVD—hosted by Wintley Phipps—you'll discover someone who grew up "colored" in segregated America with poverty, frailty, sickness, and the KKK, but who saw each and every obstacle as a blessing and an opportunity to learn.

Get to know the man who discovered uses for the peanut, the sweet potato, and the soybean and helped shape twentieth-century America through his profound spiritual conviction, a passion for exploration, and a deep wonder about the world around him. You'll find that one person can make a difference, no matter what stands in the way.

Closed Captioning for the hearing impaired.
