This quiz has received an Editor's Award for excellent content. Only the most unique and well written quizzes are eligible for this award.

WhenIntellectMeetsOpportunityBlackInventors Photo Ideas develop into reality when intellect meets opportunity. Considering that opportunities for education and venues for development have been historically limited or barely existent for people of color in America, the inventions and inventors described in this quiz are all the more noteworthy. A lot of the inventions included here were patented in the generation immediately following the Emancipation Proclamation, which illustrates my premise that all these inventors needed was an opportunity. The photo here is inventor Philip Emeagwali, featured in Question 9.
