African American Heritage Month - Black Inventors Exhibition @ City of Los Angeles Over Bridge Gallery | Women's History Month

LA City Council President Herb J. Wesson, JR. Councilmember,
10th District
Who would ever think to go to Los Angeles City Hall,
to see an excellent exhibition on African American Heritage -  Black Inventors? Well, I had the pleasure of  visiting the office of LA City Council President, Herb J. Wesson, JR., 10th District, and taking a personal tour of the exhibition with the very knowledgeable Albert Edmund Lord III, Deputy, South-East, 10th District.
The Exhibition was truly educational. I learned so much regarding Black Inventors in the USA. There are so many women who have invented so many things in the USA. Take for example, the invention of the Illusion transmitter Patent. Valerie Thomas, an African American, received a patent for an illusion transmitter. "The device produces optical illusion images that appear to be inside, or behind the mirror, concave mirrors create images that appear to be real, or in front of the mirror itself. The technology was subsequently adopted by NASA and has since been adapted for use in surgery as well as the production of television and video screens."
If you can, get on over to see the exhibition, which ends March 7, 2014. You will be so glad that you did! Knowledge = Power. Thank you, Mr. Lord III for dropping knowledge!
