White, Black, men, women and immigrant inventors all shaped the circle of creative talent who embraced modern America with their ingenuity.
Proof of this diversity is on display at The Hagley Museum and Library on the banks of the flowing Brandywine in Wilmington, Delaware.
8 Black Inventors take the spotlight in our 3 minute 30 second video.
I tour the Nation of Inventors exhibit at Hagley featuring more than 120 patent models. These replicas come from the museum's unique inventions collection spanning two full floors of display space.
Diverse stories of inventors from all walks of life are a part of "Nation of Inventors," a permanent collection that opened to the public in October, 2022.
Hands-on interactive engagement will let you dive deeper into many of the invention patent models.
This is perfect to increase the fun factor of a visit!
Our app Black History Inventors, that is also mentioned in the video features 55 Black inventors including the 8 profiled in the story.
