Thanks for the post and thanks for the topic. We are acknowledging Black History facts in our daily announcements at our school this month. We also have a Black History timeline that was created. It's rather nice. :) As an educator in the elementary school (a Title I school at that, I see so many of our young children who don't seem to appreciate the challenges many of us have overcome to provide a good life for them today. Perhaps the post will remind us all of the shoulders we stand on to be all that we can be. Just a thought :)

Elijah J. McCoy, Inventor

Elijah J. McCoy was born on May 2, 1844, in Colchester, Ontario, Canada, to fugitive slaves who had escaped from Kentucky to Canada via the Underground Railroad. In 1847, the large family returned to the United States, settling in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

Despite his qualifications, McCoy was unable to find work as an engineer in the United States due to racial barriers; skilled professional positions were not available for African Americans at the time, regardless of their training or background. McCoy accepted a position as a fireman and oiler for the Michigan Central Railroad. It was in this line of work that he developed his first major inventions. After studying the inefficiencies inherent in the existing system of oiling axles, McCoy invented a lubricating cup that distributed oil evenly over the engine's moving parts. He obtained a patent for this invention, which allowed trains to run continuously for long periods of time without pausing for maintenance.

McCoy continued to refine his devices, receiving nearly 60 patents over the course of his life. While the majority of his inventions related to lubrication systems, he also developed designs for an ironing board, a lawn sprinkler, and other machines. Although McCoy's achievements were recognized in his own time, his name did not appear on the majority of the products that he devised. Lacking the capital with which to manufacture his lubricators in large numbers, he typically assigned his patent rights to his employers or sold them to investors. In 1920, toward the end of his life, McCoy formed the Elijah McCoy Manufacturing Company to produce lubricators bearing his name.

It is believed that it was in reference to his products that the term was coined "the real McCoy."

Emilie Frances Davis, Author
(18 Feb. 1842 – 1889)

Emilie Frances Davis, a seamstress and domestic, was born free in Pennsylvania, one of four children born to Charles and Helena Davis. She grew up in Philadelphia with her sister, Elizabeth, and her two brothers, Alfred and Thomas.Davis was raised in the lower section of the Seventh Ward, near the shipyards, and probably attended one of the local black schools. Very little is known about Davis’ childhood, but her daily journal, which she kept from 1863 to 1865 provides some insight into her lifestyle, her educational background, and her political, social, and religious choices.

Davis’ three pocket diaries are one of only four known unpublished primary sources written by a free black woman during the nineteenth century. In her diary, which begins on 1 January 1863, Davis chronicles her daily experiences living and working during the latter half of the Civil War. The Jubilee Day celebrations of Abraham Lincoln’s release of the Emancipation Proclamation on that day may have prompted Davis’ decision to keep a pocket diary. It was a historic time, and perhaps she felt that her voice and her experiences were significant enough to be recorded in the annals of history.

Henriette Delille was born in New Orleans in 1813. Her father was a white man and her mother a "free person of color," of mixed race. Both were Roman Catholics. Her parents could not be married under Louisiana law, but the arrangement was common in Creole society.

Henriette Delille was influenced by Sister Marthe Fontier, who opened a school in New Orleans for girls of color. Henriette Delille herself refused to follow the practice of her mother and two siblings and identify as white, and she also defied her mother to work with slaves, nonwhites, and whites among the poor of New Orleans.

Henriette Delille worked within church institutions, but when she tried to become a postulant, she was refused by both Ursuline and Carmelite orders because of her color. If she'd passed for white, she most likely would have been admitted.

With a friend Juliette Gaudin, also a free person of color, Henriette Delille established a home for the elderly and bought a house to teach religion, both serving nonwhites. In teaching nonwhites, she defied the law against educating nonwhites.

Sisters in Law: Black Women Lawyers’ Struggle for Advancement

Carla D. Pratt

Penn State University

August 17, 2012


Abstract:
While the presence of women in law school and the legal profession has improved greatly, the uncomfortable reality is that women tend to occupy positions in the legal profession that subordinate them to men. This reality is even more glaring when the position of black women is examined. Black women carry the burden of multiple consciousness which influences every aspect of their professional lives. Multiple consciousness means that black women must be mindful of their professional identity, their gender and their race in navigating the pipeline to power. This paper will explore the multiple consciousness that intersecting identities invoke and offer modest suggestions for the advancement of black women that may prove useful for all women seeking to advance in the legal profession.

As evidence of her point is an article in which a Maryland county judge was reprimanded because he referred to 3 black female lawyers as "The Supremes," and advised the defendant to get himself "an experienced male attorney."

Vice Admiral Michelle Howard has become the first black woman in the U.S. armed forces to reach the rank of a three-star officer. Howard is based in Norfolk, Virginia and graduated from the Naval Academy in Annapolis.
In 1999, Vice Admiral Howard became the first black woman to command an American warship. She is also a survivor of the September 11th attacks on the U.S. Pentagon. She was inside the building when the commercial plane hit.
