We Were Always Here


Categories: ,


These stories include heart-rending accounts of African American inventors at the turn of the 20th century who struggled to have their inventions recognised under relentless racism. In the modern era, discover inventors from the African continent who found answers to issues that are particular to their situations. For example, there is the South African doctor who performed the world’s first 3D ear transplant, the Zambian who led breakthrough research in malaria, the Masaai child who invented a way to keep cattle safe from predators at night, and the South African entrepreneur who pioneered a revolutionary way for rural people to access their medication. The book covers inventors from as far afield as the Caribbean, America, Tanzania, Kenya, Ghana, Lesotho and South Africa. We
Were Always Here will inspire young readers and provide them with enterprising role models.
