February is when we celebrate Black History month. In honor of this celebration this assignment will be dedicated to helping us become more familiar with the contributions that Black Americans have made throughout history. If I were to ask you to name a famous African American person you might name President Barack Obama, Rosa Parks, or Martin Luther King, Jr., but do you know about Sarah Boone or Thomas W. Stewart? Sarah Boone, a Black woman, invented the comb and Mr. Stewart, a Black man, invented the mop. There are so many African Americans who we may not be aware of, but without them, we would not have many of the things we take for granted today, such as the comb and mop. Your assignment is to read a short essay titled, "Imagine If There Were No Black People in the World". After you read the essay you will learn that the world would certainly be different without the Black people mentioned in the essay. Your writing assignment is to identify three items in the essay that were invented by a Black person and describe how your life would be different if these items were
