Thomas W. Stewart - Inventor of the Clamping Mop
Thomas W. Stewart decided that people shouldn't have to touch a dirty mop head so he added a clamp that is used to wring out the mop for us. He also made the mop head removeable so it can be washed or thrown away and replaced with a new one. Thanks Mr. Stewart! #BlackHistory365 #BlackHistory #BlackHistoryIsAmericanHistory

Granville T. Woods, The Black Edison!, Inventor
Granville T. Woods, known as "The Black Edison", was the first African American mechanical and electrical engineer after the Civil War. Being self-taught, he held almost 60 U.S. patents. Alexander Graham Bell & Thomas Edison actually purchased 'their' widely known inventions from Granville. Unfortunately, Granville died penniless when he should have been richly revered as the backbone of technology. He spent all of his money on court cases for his inventions. Granville developed a deep anger towards his circumstances and the people who tried to keep him down. They broke his spirit. I salute you & thank you Granville T. Woods! #BlackHistory
