Black Scientists and Inventors
Did you know the first video game was created by Gerald Lawson, an African-American engineer who lived in Santa Clara, California? He created games to ‘teach’ something and often said he was disappointed in today’s games, since he never imagined games being violent. From Louis Latimer, Garrett A. Morgan, Louis Pasteur and Elijah McCoy to Patricia Banks (who created the first laser eye probe), African-Americans have contributed to significantly to the world as we know it. This fun and educational presentation explores those discoveries.
