This database will accept any patent holder of African American descent for listing, historical or contemporary inventors, known or unknown. You must include your patent number. Please try to include the date the patent was issued and the title of the patent.
If you would like to have a biographical page created as well, include your biography and sufficient material so that I can write at least one paragraph or more about you. If you have jpegs or gifs of you and/or your invention, send them as e-mail attachments.
What readers tend to want to know about you is your hometown, place and date of birth, educational background, your history as an inventor, and what your invention is.
Be patient - I add new entries as time permits.
