    Just Google and research each of these figures and see what interest you most. Any of them are okay to use as long as they're 'black inventors". When something interests you, the better you would most likely wanna do the work and the better the grade. Like for say, you like peanut butter and would love to know how it was made, the importance of it that George Washington Carver or if you're into driving stuff, look up Garret Morgan who created the traffic light and how he helped change history of driving so people wouldn't get into accidents,etc.made it for people like you and you're done. Just like when I had a project like this on black/African-American important figures,

    I'm all about and have a big interest of black hair/black hair styling/beauty product for the everyday black woman so I chose to do Madam C.J. Walker. You don't wanna do something that's gonna bore you and make you feel like not doing it at all which may even bore the class as well. Try going to the library or look up videos as well if you want.

    Good luck on your presentation.

    bottom: the aircraft wing-section, exactly:
