Black Inventors Who Changed History: 1800s-1900s

by Debra D. Rich


About the Book

African American scholar and historian Lerone Bennett Jr. once said, “If our children are to make history, they must first know their own history.” Deeply inspired by this sentiment, author Debra Rich set out to chronicle the lives of groundbreaking black inventors who have helped shape the world but who receive little credit or fame. With great talent and an unbreakable spirit, these African Americans overcame prejudice, poverty, violence, and hatred to create inventions we still use today. Finally, their stories must be told.

    Great information.. so much of it not widely known because it is not taught in our public schools, and the great majority of citizens are not likely aware that the many conviences and necessities that we enjoy today were invented by African Americans... These facts should not be a secret.. A must read!
