"Meet the inventors and scientists of color who changed the world! Born in Chelsea, Massachusetts, in 1848, Lewis Latimer was an inventor, a leader, a teacher, and a creator. He knew how to draw, knew the law, wrote books and poetry, and spoke several languages. Among his many accomplishments, he contributed to the design of the light bulb, and brought the electric light to cities around the world. It is time to remember how Lewis Latimer's inventions and his contributions changed our society... and our world! ABOUT THE SERIES:Many inventors and scientists of color have made incredible contributions to our modern life.
