Double Whammy

For Black History Month and for this month which hosts President's Day, here's artwork showing the time President Theodore Roosevelt hosted Booker T. Washington, a black social leader, to dinner at the White House.  At the time, it was considered quite shocking.

He also entertained George Washington Carver, a Black botanist & inventor (including of peanut butter) who had been born into slavery in 1861.  He was certainly a principled president, ahead of his time!
