Welcome to The Pen & the Needle! Ready to learn some Black history? Let's get started!
This week, we are going to learn about a few African American scholars and inventors:
Alexander Lucius Twilight(1795-1857)
Dr. George Carruthers (1939-Present)
Alfred L. Cralle (1866-1920)
Edward Alexander Bouchet (1852-1918)
The two videos below showcase some of the simple things in life that were created by African Americans, though most people don't even realize it.
Have you ever heard of any of these people? Did you learn something new today? Let me know what you learned and add to the discussion in the comments below!
