Smile Modern african history:

Air Conditioner Unit Design Frederick Jones 4/28/42 D132,182
Art Museum Design (Philadelphia) Julian Abele 4/29/1881 Born
Abele (pronounced “able”) was the Chief Designer at the prestigious Horace Trumbauer and Associates architectural firm from 1938-50. He attended the Institute for Colored Youth, which has since been transformed into Cheyney University, and in 1904 was the first African to graduate from the University of Pennsylvania School of Architecture. (Refer below to the section captioned “Library.”)
Baby Carriage — Safety Leveler William Richardson 6/18/1889 405,599
This essential invention ended the constant and serious problem of babies falling out of carriages, most of which were inherently defective because they were built without a leveler to keep the carriage safely balanced.
Bicycle Frame — Folding/Separating Version Isaac Johnson 10/10/1899 634,823
Blimp (Air Ship) — Modern Version John Pickering 2/20/1900 643,975
This blimp (i.e., air ship) was the first to be powered by an electric motor and to have directional controls.

Clothes Drier — Modern Forerunner George Sampson 6/7/1892 476,416
Computer — World’s Fastest Philip Emeagwali 1989
Emeagwali is the world’s leading supercomputer expert. Also, he actually invented an international network system that predated the current internet. CNN called him “A father of the internet,” and President Bill Clinton described him as “one of the great minds of the information age.” He holds several undergraduate and graduate degrees and has an IQ so high that it cannot be measured on conventional tests. He is a prolific inventor, so far having submitted 41 inventions to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. One of those inventions makes oil fields so productive that it has saved the U.S. hundreds of millions of dollars each year. (Refer below to the section captioned “Weather Forecasting.”)

Curtain Rod Samuel Scottron 8/30/1892 481,720
Dry Cleaning Process Thomas Jennings 3/3/1821 3306X
Jennings is the first African to receive a U.S. patent. After earning money from his patent, he used those funds to buy his enslaved family’s freedom and to support the abolition movement. Also, in 1831, he served as the Assistant Secretary for the First Annual Convention of The People of Color (which, by the way, was held in Philadelphia).
