Editorial Reviews

His journey was extraordinary: though born a slave, by the end of his life, presidents and corporate titans valued his friendship. Millions of Americans benefited from his innovations. His scientific genius is legendary, but less known is his remarkable path to greatness, defined by a life-long passion for serving others. George Washington Carver blazed trails in his personal and professional lives. This stimulating documentary beautifully traces the valiant life of Carver, chronicling his improbable odyssey from slavery to becoming a household name. George Washington Carver: An Uncommon Way is narrated by Dr. Voddie Baucham, Jr. and includes the perspectives of noted historians Peter Burchard, John Perry, George Grant, and many others. This cinematic film features footage from Carver�s boyhood home in Missouri, Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, as well as many other historical locales. This uplifting film inspires as it teaches about the life of a great American hero.

This is an excellent movie for inspiration or education and it should be considered as part of any study of George Washington Carver.

The film makers have included interviews with experts, including a ranger from the Carver National Monument and the interpretive director of the Carver Birthplace Association. There are great Carver-era photographs and viewers have the opportunity to see where Carver grew up and accomplished his great work.

Of course the story wouldn't be complete without a thorough discussion of the prejudice Carver had to overcome and the influence he had on the advancement of rights of black people. Also, to the delight of those of us who are tired of seeing watered-down biographies (books or movies) that remove any mention of religion, it's wonderful to see an inclusion of Carver's strong faith. Finally, the man had a GREAT mind. We learn about his often difficult (due to prejudice) strive for education and how he was able to become one of the greatest scientists to ever live.

The film really left me with a much greater appreciation of Carver's life experiences, goals, and accomplishments. I would highly recommend it!

The video is a documentary of a very unique historical figure. The video is well done and the commentators are authorities who really do know what they are talking about. The pictures and video (old film sequences) of Carver reveal a wonderful man who shared his faith and discoveries with the world. I highly recommend this video.

My daughter and I watched this DVD today as part of our Black History studies. To be honest, I knew very little about G. W. Carver . . . except he was famous for peanuts. Which is the point of this delightful and educational film. After viewing this, I have a new found respect for this great man. I highly recommend this video for studies relating to Black History, horticulture, biology, crops/farming, Alabama (or Deep South) History, scientists, education, perseverance, Tuskegee, Great Americans, or influential Christians. In fact, I recommend this video for anyone who enjoys documentaries. The interviews were done well and the photographs were wonderful. However, if ALL you are interested in are peanuts . . . you will be disappointed.

In addition, we also read "George Washington Carver" by Tonya Bolden, which reinforced what we learned from the film and complimented the DVD with other information, such as, G. W. Carver did not invent peanut butter. The combo of the book and DVD worked wonderfully!

I needed this DVD for a children's class. The children really enjoyed the inspirational message and gave great comments after viewing it. As they learned history while watching this movie, they were encouraged, uplifted and began believing that they too can achieve greatness in a way that serves others. A must see!
