Garrett Morgan was a voracious inventor and a leader in the African American community. This life saving invention is a safety hood. Morgan went to work on inventing this hood after seeing firefighters struggling to withstand smoke they encountered in the line of duty. In 1914 he secured a patent for his device, a canvas hood with two tubes. Morgan’s safety hood won accolades and adoption in the north, but faced resistance in the segregated south. Morgan would go on to use this item himself in 1916 when he rescued several men from a gas filled tunnel under Lake Erie. This hood would not only aid firefighters in over 500 cities, but would also go on to become the prototype and precursor for the gas masks used during WWI, protecting soldiers from toxic gas used in warfare. This replica hood is currently on display in #clestartshere

"Morgan created and patented his most famous and widely used invention, the traffic signal, in 1923. Although he acquired patents in the U.S. Britain, and Canada, he eventually sold the rights to General Electric for $40,000.00.”

"Morgan experimented with ways to eradicate a common problem among sewing machines: the needle of the machine would cause friction that would then burn the fabric. He set out to create a solution that would prevent burning. His solution, however, made the fibers straight. After testing the solution on a dog and then himself, he began selling his hair refiner.”

Garrett Augustus Morgan, Sr. (March 4, 1877 – July 27, 1963) was an inventor and community leader. He was the subject of a newspaper feature in Cleveland, Ohio, for a heroic rescue in 1916 of workers trapped within a water intake tunnel, 50 ft (15 m) beneath Lake Erie. He performed his rescue using a hood fashioned to protect his eyes from smoke and featuring a series of air tubes that hung near the ground to draw clean air beneath the rising smoke. This enabled Morgan to lengthen his ability to endure the inhospitable conditions of a smoke-filled room. Other inventions of Morgan's include the development of a chemical for hair-straightening. Morgan is also credited as the first African American in Cleveland to own an automobile.

The first American-made automobiles were introduced to consumers just before the turn of the twentieth century, and pedestrians, bicycles, animal-drawn wagons and motor vehicles all had to share the same roads. To deal with the growing problem of traffic accidents, a number of versions of traffic signaling devices began to be developed, starting around 1913.

Morgan had witnessed a serious accident at an intersection, and he filed a patent for traffic control device having a third "warning" position in 1922. The patent was granted in 1923, though this was not the first system with a warning, a three light system being invented in 1920 by William Potts, and previous systems having audible warnings.

Morgan sold the rights to General Electric for $40,000.

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.
