Summary[edit]

Description
English: Botanist George Washington Carver. The image has been restored, with dust spots removed, and with levels adjusted to better File:George_Washington_Carver,_ca._1902.jpg match his actual skin tone. It was quite common for photographers to overexpose images of darker-skinned people to bring out details, but this was often fixed for publication, and, if uncorrected, has problematic consequences for how history is imagined.
