See Tommy Terrific as George Washington Carver

Celebrate Black History Month with Tulsa City-County Library and Tommy Terrific.

   See a magic show about the African-American scientist and inventor George Washington Carver.  The show will feature magic tricks related to his promotion of peanuts, sweet potatoes and much, much more.  Throughout the show, Tommy Terrific will explore the products, inventions and accomplishments of this “Wizard of Tuskegee.”  In 1896, Booker T. Washington, president of the Tuskegee Institute, invited Carver to lead Tuskegee Institute’s Agriculture Department.  For nearly 50 years, Carver discovered and developed innovative uses for peanuts, sweet potatoes, soybeans, pecans and other crops.

   For ages 12 and younger.  Seating is limited.  Tommy Terrific’s visit is sponsored by the Tulsa Performing Arts Center Trust and Tulsa Library Trust.
