Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judith Campbell
This is a wonderful book in the series, "Great Black Heroes." The author gives the history of five black inventors whose inventions have contributed greatly to the industrialized world. The stories are filled with the themes of overcoming obstacles, perseverance, and confidence in one's work. Although only a few inventions are mentioned, most of the inventors had several patents. The inventions highlighted are items that are still used today like the shoe lasting machine, traffic light, electrical systems used to run trains and the predecessor to the gas mask. The illustrations of inventions along with portraits of the inventors add to the intriguing yet brief narrative biographies. This book is not just about "great black heroes" but about great American inventors.
