Celebrate American History
February has long been recognized as Black History Month. What we often don't recognize is, Black History is American history. African-Americans have an immensely rich history of their own, but it has an important place in the history of this nation. To continue progressing as a country, we must be forever conscious of the contributions of all our equally important sub-cultures.
Here's some important contributions African-Americans have made to the land we call home:
Alexander Mills - Elevator
Richard Spikes - Automobile gear shift
Garrett Morgan - Traffic signals
Albert R. Robinson - Electric trolley
John Love - Pencil sharpener
L.C. Bailey - Folding bed
Andrew J. Beard - Rotary engine
Marie Brown - Video surveillance home security system
Sarah Boone - Ironing board
Otis Boykin - Pacemaker
George W. Carver - Paints & satins, peanut butter, lotion and soaps
Lee Barrage - Typewriter
John Standard - Refrigerator
W.B. Purvis - Fountain pen
Dr. Charles Drew - Blood plasma
