LORDLANDONLINE.COM Presents A Black History Tribute To Black Inventors. The Men and Women who made/make it happen, who are Masters of Invention. Sit back, relax with the whole family, and enjoy this Black History Month Tribute to Black Inventors.
LORDLANDONLINE.COM Presents, For Black History Month, Great Black Inventors. First up is a man who created an invention which we use everyday. And, without it-- where would we be, where it concerns technology, the arts, and or everyday life? We salute Lewis H. Latimer,The Inventor of the electric light! In 1881, Lewis Latimer invented the light commonly used today. Before Latimer's improvements, the light bulb had no practical use because it did not give off light for an extended period of time. Later, Edison would hire Lewis to write all of his patients, and people know, whomever actually writes the patients is actually the inventor of invention, because they have actually worked on it, know the ins and outs, and have the knowledge to write the patient. In the movie starring Spencer Tracey about Edison, they represent Lewis Latimer as a little Black boy who is there learning from Edison; when in actuality-- Latimer was a full grown educated Black man who gave Edison his stature in the inventing world. We salute Lewis H. Latimer during and beyond Black History Month, every time we turn on the light switch-- it's he we honor.
