George Washington Carver
From Slave to Scientist
A sickly baby lay in a rough wooden box beside the fire. Mary, gently rubbing ointment into his chest with an effort to ease his congestion and lessen the effects of whopping cough. As she rubbed the ointment, she sang quietly to Jim, her two-year-old son lying on a straw mat on the dirt floor trying to go to sleep. Suddenly the door to the tiny slave hut where she lived burst open. Mary jumped to her feet, panic-stricken at the terror she saw reflected in her master's eyes.
