The Impact of Black Inventors

Picture this: No traffic lights at bustling intersections. Doesn’t that sound like a wild, chaotic world? We can thank Garrett Morgan for giving us those life-saving traffic signals. And his genius didn’t stop there. Nope. He also invented the gas mask, saving countless lives during emergencies.

Now, think about this. The soft glow of the electric lamp that lights up your room every evening? That's thanks to the genius of Lewis Latimer. He created the carbon filament, a vital component in the long-lasting, affordable electric lamps that we rely on today. Can you imagine a world without his light? Neither can we.

These are just a couple of our brilliant Black inventors. There are many, many more.
