Free with museum admission An investigation into the history of Invention will lead you to the discovery that American innovation is filled with the contributions of black inventors. Many every-day products and objects are related to, derivative of, or influenced by the creations of black inventors. From blood-banks, the electric trolley, egg beaters, and clothes dryers to the refrigerator, lawn mowers and the pencil sharpener, the list of remarkable inventions created by African-Americans is endless. Inventors such as George Washington Carver and Madam CJ Walker leap to mind when thinking about famous African-American inventors. But who are the present-day inventors of color that have contributed to the advancement of science, medicine, culture, and our every-day lives?
