Black History Month Port Arthur – Celebrating the Life of Inventor Garrett Morgan

Black History Month in The Golden Triangle

Garrett Morgan – Inventor of The Traffic Light

On today’s edition of Black History Month Port Arthur we celebrate the life of notable African American inventor Garrett Morgan.

This morning you’ll undoubtedly stop at a few traffic lights on your way to work. Garrett Morgan is one of the inventors who made improvements to the traffic signals over a hundred years ago eventually leading to those we know today.

Garrett Morgan Black History Bio

Garrett Morgan held several patents for improved traffic lights.

Many feel his most significant invention is what would become known as the gas mask. Garrett Morgan invented a device to save the lives of miners who were trapped in an underground mine filled with dangerous gases. He went on to create gas masks for the US Army that saved lives in World War I.

American hero? We think so.

We hope you have enjoyed today’s edition of Black History Month Port Arthur.

We have enjoyed telling the story of this ground breaking African American inventor.

We’d also like to spotlight someone here in Southeast Texas.

Today we are also happy to feature a contemporary African outfit modeled by Beaumont businesswoman Velenta Mathews,  a leading Southeast Texas Early Childhood Development Specialist.
