This project series will be presented in part, in order for those of us who haven’t a clue as to the importance of our people’s contributions in and to the United States as well as what we have introduced throughout the Whole World Wide!

There are many Black innovators who have not been included in the listing(s) due to lack of resource information.

Examples include the invention of ‘The Clock’ by Benjamin Banneker and the “Potato Chip” by George Crum and the first Black Woman Astronaut, Mae C. Jemison and Garrett A Morgan’s invention, the ‘Traffic Signal!
