Black History Month Southeast Texas

Fun facts and contemporary African Attire

This month we will be highlighting some fun facts honoring African Americans who shaped our nation’s history.

We will also be sharing some contemporary African attire modeled by local business woman Velenta Mathews, a Golden Triangle Early Childhood Development Specialist.

George Washington Carver

(1865?-1943) was an American scientist, educator, humanitarian, and former slave. Carver developed hundreds of products from peanuts, sweet potatoes, pecans, and soybeans; his discoveries greatly improved the agricultural output and the health of Southern farmers. Before this, the only main crop in the South was cotton. The products that Carver invented included a rubber substitute, adhesives, foodstuffs, dyes, pigments, and many other products.
