Like all other Black inventors,
Bessiee Blount is a Black inventor that
makes me proud. What she said, though
was unique. She refused to have her inventions
in a museum because she did not want
people to have to pay to see her inventions.
She said she would take her inventions to
schools where people can hold them and
touch them. Bessie really wants us Black
people to know we are history.
Bessie Blount can write with her
mouth and her toes.This she learned after
a teacher did not want her to write with her
So Bessie Blount, a Black
woman wants to move to Hapton Roads
where she can spread out and let
students to ask her questions for free.
Indeed, people with no arms,
or no feet, can use her technique to
Her experience and
her teaching is to not let things
stop you. There are problems in the
world that are ridiculous and serious
as costing an arm and a leg. Then there
are people who don’t have both arms
or both legs or either or. And Bessie
is especially an inspiration to handicapped
people, because they need a way
to live more comfortably. But she is
still a definite inspiration to all.
I salute Bessie Blount, the wonderful
Black inventor standing up for Black
women and Black men, all Black people
and being one of the MANY BLack inventors
that show those people what we can do
and what we did!
