Wow, great information, as we celebrate Black History; President Obama's proclamation reminds us of the great contribution Black women provided to this Country and encourages all Federal agencies and everyone to share of our contributions. Great!

All of us should thank Sarah E Goode for her unique invention. Though that equipment has been invented a long time ago, and there's a possibility that many people may not know it these days, we should still be thankful for without her invention, there would be no innovation. She started it all! We know many inventors, but this is the first time I've heard her name. Thank you for this article!
