Who would have thought that a traffic light would make such a difference?
Garret Morgan must have known that traffic lights would make an enormous difference all over the work.
An African American man with only a primary school education was surely not the person that was expected to come up with such.
Amongst investing hair-straightening products, a breathing device, and a new version of a sewing machine, he made a new version of a traffic light.
He began his career off by working as a sewing machine mechanic and this is where things began looking up for him.
The company with the hair-straightening products came first then second came the breathing device company.
His final product was the Traffic light, this came about when he witnessed an accident, sparking an idea for him to create the traffic light that has red, yellow, and green to signal when to stop, slow down, and go.
He eventually sold the rights of the traffic light to General Electric for $40 000.
This mad showed that he was invertor is many aspects of his life, and this made him a successful black man.
Even though he only had a primary school level of education he made sure to strive.
