Did you know that many of everyday life inventions, still used nowadays across the world, were created by Black inventors?
 
The three-light traffic light, the improved ironing board, refrigerated trucks, automatic elevators doors, the carbon light bulb filament, the sanitary belt revolutionising menstrual pads… Wonderful contributions that made our daily life much easier!
 
“Every person is born with a creative mind. Everyone has that ability.” – Mary Beatrice Davidson Kenner, Black woman inventor
