Sarah Boone

Sarah Boone was an inventor, and one of the first Black women to be awarded a patent in the United States. Born an enslaved person, Boone overcame the odds to successfully invent improvements to the ironing board. In this era, African Americans were not taught to read and write, so she faced a lot of disadvantages, but this did not stop her.
