Working alone, Garrett Morgan invented a safety hood for firefighters. Little did he know that most people wouldn't be interested in his safety hood - a device that would literally save lives - once they discovered its inventor was black. Following an explosion that trapped workers in a tunnel under Lake Erie, Garrett pleaded for his hoods to be taken to the scene; they were and hundreds lived. Developed further, Garrett's hoods came to save thousands of soldiers in World War I. This gorgeous picture book introduces Garrett's story to young children for the first time.
