Self-Determination @ Tulip Jones Women's Club
I forgot to mention that Sister Tiombe's children shared science facts with us such in song and in a guess who game where they gave us hints and we were supposed ton know the answer. I knew Betsey Coleman, http://www.squidoo.com/bessie-coleman, the pilot and Lewis Latimer who invented the carbon filament for the light bulb, yet, Thomas Edison got all the credit for the first light bulb. Visit http://web.mit.edu/invent/iow/latimer.html. Some of these people I know because my parents had a book called Great American Negroes, where I learned about George Washington Carver, Garrett Morgan, http://www.blackinventor.com/pages/garrettmorgan. html, who invented the traffic light, and and others I know because I attended an Independent Black School and still others I know because of Joy Holland's poetry and my own research and reading and watching films.
