Helping black farmers prosper
George Washington Carver helped black farmers prosper, free from the tyranny of cotton.
Carver took over the agriculture department at the Tuskegee Institute in 1896 to aid black farmers. Carver began experimenting with plants like peanuts and sweet potatoes, replenishing the nitrogen that cotton plantations stripped from the soil, and helping farmers feed their families.
