The process of inventing something to improve or save lives is not easy. However, African Americans had to face a more difficult road than other inventors. From finding educational opportunities to securing the patents for their work, African-American inventors used determination and curiosity to make contributions that continue to affect us today. Author Jeff C. Young describes their struggles and triumphs. Inventors featured include Patricia Era Bath, George Washington Carver, Lonnie G. Johnson, Percy Lavon Julian, Lewis Howard Latimer, Jan E. Matzeliger, Garrett A. Morgan, Madame C. J. Walker, and Granville T. Woods.
