Looking at pages and pages of inventions, cures and creations listed on the website blackinventions.org gave me goosebumps.  To think that MY people...African Americans ignored their oppressed conditions to create some of the greatest inventions this country has ever known is simply miraculous.  The player piano. the Golf Tee. The Door Knob and the Gas Mask....all the handiwork or Black people.  

And let’s now forget the countless inventions and patents of Dr. George Washington Carver.  (In the photo above) Simply astounding!!

On today’s show we’ll explore the countless innovations of a people brought to the shores of America in chains, only to rise above their circumstances with creativity and talent so abundant in the Black community.

If you want some inspiration so that YOU can discover your personal levels of innovation, today’s show is for YOU.
