Carver : An 8 page research paper that

accomplishments would be extraordinary for anyone.
However, what makes this list all the more remarkable is the
fact that when Carver was born, it was against the law for
him to even learn how to read and write, much less acquire
the knowledge to become a master chemist and a scientific
pioneer. George Washington Carver was born a slave.
