Some of the world’s most popular inventions were created by African-Americans, dating back to 1820, when Thomas Jennings, believed to be the first African-American inventor to receive a patent, created a more efficient dry cleaning process. Many years later, Judy W. Reed became the first African-American female inventor with her hand-operated dough kneader and roller. Reed, who was illiterate, signed the patent with an ‘X.’
This is an invention made by Patricia E. Bath, M.D.
Year patented: 1986
Inventor: Patricia E. Bath, M.D., (1942–), first woman to chair an ophthalmology residency program in the United States
A specialized tool and procedure for the removal of cataracts, the Laserphaco Probe increased the accuracy and results of cataract surgery, previously performed manually with a mechanical grinder. Created with highly accurate laser technology, the Laserphaco Probe combines an optical laser, irrigation system and suction tubes. The laser vaporizes the cataracts and lens material via a 1-millimeter insertion into the patient’s eye and a replacement lens is inserted. Its use has helped restore the sight of several people who had been blinded by cataracts for up to 30 years.

The time has arrived in our society to recognize the new face of terror and violence.
We might need to consider that this attitude could be home grown.
African Americans have seen this face before.
We might be able to help this nation come to grips with this new face of Terrorism ; right in our own back yards.
Thank God for the leaders of this community that have fought against this terror throughout their lives.
We dedicate this post to all the brave people who responded to this vicious act with kindness and compassion for those who were injured.
Thank you for staying on the front lines of our struggle with terror.
