This is early Black Inventors from the the American main land. The number of Inventions, Patents and Labor Saving Devices conceived by Black Inventors. African before the period of the Slave Trade and their enslavement developed agricultural tools, building materials, medical herbs, cloths and weapons among many other inventions. It is relatively unknown that thousand of Africans and their descendants developed numerous labor saving devices and inventions that spawned companies which generates many jobs world wide.














The fact that inventions created by Black People both past and present were developed and patented on a global scale.  Black contribution to history is more hidden than the role of Inventors and Scientist, most often their achievements were appropriated by White Entrepreneurs, becoming the source of immense profits for others. For some inventors who were slaves their owners claimed credits. The prevailing racist culture could not and still does not allow Black Scientist and Engineers to be credited with their invaluable contributions.
