Black History Month 2021

February 8, 2021

In honor of Black History Month #TeamHelix would like to recognize the invaluable contributions black inventors have made throughout history to shape our lives. Granville T. Woods was the first African American Mechanical and Electrical Engineer after the Civil War. He was a prolific inventor, with over 150 patents. He sold many of his inventions to General Electric, Westinghouse and Bell Telephone.
