During Black History month, we usually hear about Blacks who've created various products such as Madame C.J. Walker, George Washington Carver, Garret Morgan, Elijah McCoy, etc. But did you know that there are more African-Americans who created other products such as the super soaker toy, a laser surgical device, the potato chip, and a bread making machine? It's amazing and inspiring to discover that there are more inventions and products that were created by our people. Unfortunately, a lot of us are not aware of the depths of our history and we can't keep relying on the media to tell us the truth or keep us informed. It's also inspiring to see that Blacks can accomplish anything we set our mind to no matter how much the media or other people try to paint us in a negative light.
