Black Lives Matter: 100 Inventions Made By Blacks Persons



As someone said, “No race has the monopoly of beauty and intelligence.” Great scholars like Aristotle, had formally emphasized that Egypt is the cradle of Mathematics, he as a specialist in metaphysics, had specified that the Egyptians were excessively black in skin, speaking of their physiognomy. Everyone from the West came to learn in ancient Egypt.

The Greek scientist Herodotus, an eyewitness, attests that “the ancient Egyptians have black skin and frizzy hair.

Modern history must restore certain truths. Do you know that the greatest musician of all time, according to the West, is Beethoven? However, the latter is a descendant of black Africa. But, this same West wanted by all means to whitewash it. Why? The contribution of the black world to modern science and technology deserves to be highlighted.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of inventions made by men and women of the black diaspora, who have changed the world and will remain essential.
