African American Inventors deserve the spotlight 24/7!

 

I often wondered why "Black History Month" was celebrated in the shortest month of the year...Like. 
really? I certainly didn't take it upon myself to discover and learn the history because I just. 
Assumed as a youth, that’s how it should be.

But as I got older, the topic became so.
Fascinating to me. I found myself in absolute shock and excitement at our vast and vital 
contributions to everyday essentials that we all took for granted...Wow, We Did Dat!! Why 
Am I finding this out at the tender age of?(none ya bidness ��) I felt so much pride that I
shared the same ancestral bloodlines as such mental giants.

 Then I thought, Wow, the joy. 
And pride I felt discovering these facts as an adult how our new generation feel? I know that this knowledge would impact them is a positive way.
If our schools refuse to educate them, isn't then our 
duty to uplift and evoke pride and imagination in our national little treasures...If they don't 
know who's fault is it? This is our history and legacy left to us to improve upon and. 
celebrate.

 Every time you open your Mailbox, use the Dustpan to clean, sitting in your car. 
waiting for the Traffic light to change, eats a potato Chip, Ladies, putting that Perm on our
scalp? And the list goes on, and on and on. 

African American inventors contributed vital inventions to aid us all in our daily lives, and the
vast majority are unknown and forgotten. And let's not forget many patents were denied. 
due to their skin color & countless invention ideas were stolen by the slave owners. I am. 
Here to say that our contributions weren't just Peanut Butter, our history is so rich and vast that we need to 
celebrate it 24/7. Myancestorsdiddat is a conversation starter for the kids. Who’s that on
Your shirt? Who's that on your bag? This needs to be part of the daily conversation while.
educating their classmates as well.

We also have a free resource page with puzzles, word searches for download & printing free of charge.
