patented ingenuity at the pg african american museum

just around the corner from us
at the intimate prince george’s african american museum and cultural center
was the exhibit patented ingenuity: the art of african american inventors.
we discovered just a few of the patents made by african americans,
— some from prince george’s county in particular —
including the first water gun,
air conditioner for vehicles,
turtle-shaped lawn sprinkler
and many more.

there was also space for inspired visitors to share their own invention.
note the shoes with detachable soles;
when you start seeing them in the stores
remember that you saw it here first.
