George Washington Carver finds a “Colored School”

Karamu Arts Theater actor Stephen D. Hood performed an in-character dramatization of Dr. George Washington Carver at a Juneteenth event put on by the African-American Cultural Garden in Cleveland. Mr. Hood, as Dr. Carver, told of his excitement of learning there was a Colored School where slaves like him might be able to learn reading, writing and more.  Mr. Hood’s full presentation is about 45 minutes and is geared toward students and other groups.
