Here is some #BlackHistory as well as #AmericanHistory for you today!
Garrett Morgan (1877 - 1963) inventor who created the “safety hood” to help firefighters navigate smokey buildings in 1914. He later modified his invention to be able to carry its own air supply, making it the world’s first effective gas mask. He is also responsible for early modifications to the traffic light in 1923, which he invented after seeing so many automobiles accidents and included a warning light to alert drivers when they needed to stop.
