Smile Modern african history:

Elevator — Automatic Electric Shaft Closing Alexander Miles 10/11/1887 371,207
This invention has saved hundreds of thousands of lives by drastically improving upon pre-existing and quite dangerous ascending/descending contraptions. Those contraptions (i.e., primitive elevators), when stopped on a floor other than that desired by a passenger, required that passenger to manually shut a door to cut off access to the shaft, which often caused that passenger to fall into that deep shaft.
Fire Escape — Portable Daniel McCree 11/11/1890 440,322
Fire Extinguisher Improvement Thomas Martin 3/26/1872 125,063
Firemen’s Mobile Ladder Joseph Winter 5/7/1878 203,517
Gas Mask Garrett Morgan 10/13/14 1,113,675
Golf Tee Dr. George Grant 12/12/1899 638,920
Prior to this invention by Dr. Grant (who, by the way, graduated from and later taught at Harvard Dental School), golfers had to use their hands to make a mound of sand and then place the ball on top of that mound. Despite his innovative genius that greatly benefited golfers worldwide, he was barred — and still would be barred — from many country clubs because of his race.
Heart (Open Heart) Surgery Dr. Daniel Hale Williams 7/9/1893
Dr. Williams performed this miraculous feat by removing a knife from the heart of a stabbing victim, after which he sutured the wound and the patient recovered. He also founded the Provident Hospital and Medical Center in Chicago, IL, which is the oldest free standing Black-owned hospital in the country.
Heating Furnace — Ventilation System Alice Parker 12/19/19 1,325,905
This invention provided a mechanism for routing heat to various rooms throughout a building.
Ice Cream — Method and Recipes Augustus Jackson 1832
Jackson, a Philadelphian and a former White House chef, uniquely used ice mixed with salt to lower and control the temperature of his special mix of ingredients, which proved to be a major breakthrough in the creation of ice cream as we know it today. He also created various ice cream flavors. However, he never applied for a patent.
Ice Cream Scooper — Spring Loaded Alfred Cralle 2/2/1897 576,395
Ironing Board — Improvement Sarah Boone 4/26/1892 473,653
