Newton County Missouri

Check out this great video of Newton County, Missouri. It includes footage of the first National Park dedicated to a black man. George Washington Carver National Monument will be 75 years old in 2018. George Washington Carver was born into slavery in Diamond Grove, Missouri. George attended his first formal school at the 1872 Colored School in Neosho, MO. and from that point forward his thirst for knowledge, led him to Iowa State University in Ames, IA, and to Tuskegee Institute in Tuskegee, Alabama. What an amazing story.
