In fact, Edison lost several patent lawsuits in which courts ruled that others, notably Joseph Swan in England and William Sawyer in the . had invented lightbulbs before him.

Ten-year bookseller here.

Underscored by a theme of perseverance, this book is packed with iconic African American role models. In my opinion, an empowering book that's great as a gift, especially for boys and girls who need affirmation that there are many paths towards a life of meaningful accomplishments.

As I age, I continually discover how the inventor who was given credit for the discovery couldn't have done it without the help of many others who are NEVER listed with that inventor's name. This is a great book for adults to read to young children and for upper elementary children to read on their own. It's basically a story within a story, easy to understand, and gives credit to those who should have been given credit for their work many years ago. This is a book that should be read all year round.

This is a beautiful tale of two African American children learning about African American inventors who are far too often neglected. It's a childrens book, so don't expect deep material, but I highly recommend it for children.
Lightseeker
This is one of the best books I've ever read. I never learned about these pioneers during Black History Month. The ice cream scoop invention was my favorite. Great book Kareem!
Use_Death
Definitely a children's book but well written and will teach them a lot! A little too elementary for most adults but many probably don't know the subject matter. So all will learn from this book.

Excellent book detailing notable inventions by african americans - some that you'd never think of. Format of book is excellent. My kids enjoyed reading it, me too. Indeed it is now a table top book. Good to have these type of items around as the school systems are notoriously short on focus of contributions of african americans to american society, as well as to offset all the negative stimuli in other media.

What Color Is My World?: The Lost History of African-American InventorsI consider myself extremely knowledgeable about black history and inventions but I was surprised by the number of inventors in this book I'd never heard of! We just got this book and my wife read it to the kids this evening. It was great and my kids loved it. If you really want a great book for black history month that will please both adults and kids, this is it.
The story line and intertwining of the history of the African American Inventors is masterful. The art work is superb as well. This is a wonderful book to add to your child's library. I admit I was so impressed with the book that I am keeping this copy for myself and plan to purchase a copy for my grands for their upcoming birthdays. I would like to see these authors do additional books of this kind. Simply a great buy!
