George Washington Carver

George Washington Carver (1860s– January 5, 1943), was an American botanist and inventor. He actively promoted alternative crops to cotton and methods to prevent soil depletion. While a professor at Tuskegee Institute, Carver developed techniques to improve soils depleted by repeated plantings of cotton. He wanted poor farmers to grow alternative crops, such as peanuts and sweet potatoes, as a source of their own food and to improve their quality of life. The most popular of his 44 practical bulletins for farmers contained 105 food recipes using peanuts.

Although he spent years developing and promoting numerous products made from peanuts, none became commercially successful, at that time, which of course they are today.Apart from his work to improve the lives of farmers, Carver was also a leader in promoting environmentalism. He received numerous honors for his work, including the Spingarn Medal of the NAACP. During his life time, in an era of very high racial polarization, his fame reached beyond the black community.

He was widely recognized and praised in the white community for his many great achievements and talents. In 1941, Time magazine dubbed George Washington Carver a “Black Leonardo.”  source: (

“Where there is no vision, there is no hope.”
– George Washington Carver

In the opinion of Dr. Richard King, M.D.

The African-American Psychiatrist, Dr. Richard King, a renowned expert, and authority, on the use of the Pineal Gland hormone, Melanin, once said theAfrican-American botanist and inventor George Washington Carver was one of the world’s greatest inventors because of his superior use of the Melanin hormone. He stated that because of thehigh level of Melanin in George Washington Carver’s body, he was able to speak with plants, and they (plants) could speak back to him. Which helpedMr. Carver to acquire his extensive knowledge ofthe plant kingdom, and their beneficial use to mankind.

Dr. Richard King believed that because Mr. George Washington Carver’sparents were both born into slavery, and both parents had been breast fed(also called nursing), by their slave mothers, and because Mr. Carver was breast fed by his mother, his Melanin levels were very high throughout his body even in his old age. Therefore, according to Dr. Richard King, the result of this slave nursing practice, the milk was at a higher level of pure Melanin being produced throughoutMr. Carver’s body by his Pineal Gland. So, when slavery ended, and Mr. Carver was free to study and develop his interest in thefield biology, his focus and determination to master the subject of biology was aided by thehigher levels of Melanin distributed throughout his body.

Mr. Carver acquired a degree in biology and began his practice at the TuskegeeInstitute. And, as the story goes, Mr. Carver soon developed the habit of going out into the early morning SUN light to study plants. He would walk among the fields of crops growing on farmland, and according to those who knew him. It issaid he would often talk to the plants,he would also talk to crops in the fields, and to the plants in the forest and in return,these plants would talkhim. It is said, Mr. Carver would ask questions, and the plants would answerhim telepathically.

A fascinating story, and I of course, have no idea if this story, told by Dr. Richard King, is true or not. What I do know is if theMelanin levels in a human body are high enough, and are fully developed enough, a human being will gain greater strength and ability physically, and maybeeven supernatural powers, that are not, supernatural at all, according to Dr. King, but normal skills, or normal abilities,that we all have the ability to develop, if the Melanin levels in our body is high enough.

Again, I am not here to debate this statement by Dr. Richard King, other than to say, it is a fact that George Washington Carver is recognized as one of the greatest Biologist and Inventor, the World has ever known.
