    The Right To Invent

    The Right To Invent

    Dr. Lisa Cook had a hunch that although African Americans were “free to invent,” the threat of violence that inventors in this community faced had a direct impact on their ability to engage in the free flow of ideas. Her research on patents filed by African Americans led her to conclusive evidence...evidence that Dr. Lataisia Jones is living today. 


    As the first African American to earn a Ph.D. within the Department of Biomedical Sciences at Florida State University, Dr. Jones experienced difficulty in completing her studies while witnessing racial injustice all around her. In light of the current environment of police brutality against Black Americans, she decided she needed to create a community to show people of color that there are role models and mentors who are just like them.

Thanks for these motivational stories. It’s great to know that people are tackling the problems we face - after each episode I feel a bit more excited about the future and energized to try and find the inventor in me so I can perhaps add to that future in my own small way!
