Inventors and Black Scholars: Here is a book with surprising title, Inventors and Black Scholars. Surprising because it goes against the image we have of blacks whose creative ability and achievements are limited to specific areas: music, sports, dance. If the names of Wole Soyinka (Nobel Prize for Literature, 1986), and Muhammad Ali (three-time boxing world champion) are more or less familiar to most of us, it would be hard to name two or three high-flying scientists. Is it known that the first open heart surgery was performed by Dr. Daniel Hale Williams in 1893 in Chicago? Is it known that the American chemist George Washington Carver has extracted from potatoes more than a hundred products such as flour, ink, tapioca, starch and synthetic rubber? The book thus unveils a new dimension of the universe of blacks whose contribution to modern science and technology, although it has been overshadowed for too long, is not less appreciable. Far from being exhaustive, the inventory drawn up in this book arouses our curiosity and encourages us to explore further. Non-exhaustive list of inventions made by the Black diaspora:
