Every February we celebrate the history and achievements of Black Americans and every February I learn something new. This year is no exception. While I knew about several of these inventors, I learned about some new ones.

The following Black Inventors Scrapbook is by no means all inclusive, but just a sampling of Black Inventors. Check out the display case in the lobby of Westlake Porter Public Library to discover other black inventors and their contributions.
