Black History Month

Happy Black History Month P.K.! Today’s Black history fact is: Garrett Morgan’s take on the traffic signal, which he patented in 1922, was the first to offer a third “caution” signal which is now known as the yellow light. In 1912, Morgan received a patent for his “Breathing Device,” which was one of the earliest versions of a gas mask.
