Your Little Black Book

Baron Jay Littleton, Jr. was inspired to learn about African American inventors when he had to present a project in the fourth grade about Garrett Morgan, the inventor of the traffic light and gas mask. Inventions like Morgan’s peaked Littleton’s interest and he wanted to know more about Black inventors who are often overshadowed and not mentioned in history classes. image

He took all the Black inventor facts he learned and compiled them in his “Your Little Black Book” series, which chronicles prominent African Americans in history, business, sports, science and various inventions.

imageHis latest book release is titled, “Your Little Brown Book,” which highlights Latino contributions to society and the world.

Annenberg Radio News host Heather Hope interviewed Littleton as part of Black History Month.
