Well, most of the great books I’ve seen about Black History, I have found
on Amazon.com. Thank God for the way Amazon’s site is set up.
I just recently found out you can get the index of a book on the site.
Therefore, I know that this book talks about AFrica’s Gift to
America, Black women inventors, technological innovations of
Black people, medicine and health sciences of Black people,
Patents, the Afro-American Historical and Cultural Museum,etc.
Imagine if books on Black Acheivements and
Black History were talked about in schools. Imagine if this
kinda book were broadcast over the radio airwaves.
Anyways, there is a list of African American inventors from 1790 to
today along with their patent numbers for their inventions. Books like that
make me think about my quote “The More knowledge I have on Black Acheivements,
and Black History, the more I feel my mind has been fed”.
This book gives details about Black inventors of all fields. It even
mentions that one of the inventions of the Black person is a portable
heart monitor. Many of the inventions of Black people ease domestic
life, improve safety of leisure activies, promote efficency of industrial
processes. What makes this author stand out from the many authors
on Black History is that Patricia carter Sluby, a Black woman
who wrote the book is a registered Patent Agent as well as
a U.S primary patent examiner. She has written books like
Creativity and Inventions: The Genius of Afro-Americans and
Women in the UNited States and their Patents.
I’m really happy with computers because of the information
they provide. It makes it easier to find books without leaving the house.
