Traveling for the Truth

"It was strange, but, in this age of swift communication, one had to travel thousands of miles to get a set of straight, simple facts... Propaganda jams the media of communication."

                     -Richard Wright, The Color Curtain

Can we get facts straight today? As I recall the Presidential Campaign, the Republican/Tea Party and their propaganda machine of smoke, and mirrors, and lies as well as, the hordes of people who did not have to work too hard or travel too far to believe said lies, one wonders how far does one have to travel today to get the so-called simple facts. 


They are impeded by Propaganda on all four sides.

Millions of miles traveled.

The Color Curtain: Richard Wright

For some time now, I have been completely consumed by three powerhouse novels written by Richard Wright:  Black Power, The Color Curtain, and White Man Listen. Although Wright penned these novels in the 1950s, they speak volumes today, laying the background to the civil unrest, the racism and the hatred that resounds around the world!

 In the Afterword of the Color Curtain Wright makes this poignant observation:

     "In the future there will be white men who will look
         into black and yellow and brown faces and they will
         say to themselves: "I wish to God that those faces were
         educated, that they had lived lives as secure and serene
         as mine; then I would be able to talk to them, to reason
         with them..." But then it would be too late." 

According to Wright, the aforementioned will be the case because of the way in which "the white man" has oppressed the entire world-Asia, Africa, Mexico and India-via Slavery, Colonization, Imperialism and War. It seems that we are living  out Wright's prophecy, and he was absolutely correct in his assessment of the times!

The Black Count, by Tom Reiss, is about "The real count of Monte Cristo" Alexandre Dumas, the black Frenchmen who also wrote The Man in the Iron Mask, The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers.

Black Invention-Inventors in Communications

African-American Inventors: These are the Voices speaking from the Margins of America!

1.   Granville T. W: Telephone System and Apparatus/Relay Instruments/Apparatus for Transmission of Messages by Electricity
Improved the transmission of voice and sound over the telephone, making it easier to hear and understand what the other person is saying. Reduced the amount of interference from neighboring lines.
Like the modern telephone, the Relay Instrument used a combination of electricity and magnets which improved the construction and sensitivity of inductive telegraphy.
The Apparatus for Transmission of Messages allowed the transmitting of signal and voice messages over the same line without changing instruments. 

2.  Philip B. Downing: The Letter Box as it was called then. You know it as the Mail Box today
Downing designed the mailbox to help protect the mail and to make it easily accessible by the mailman (woman) to help make his/her job a litter easier.  Today public mailboxes can be found on almost every city street.

3.  Newman R. Marshman & Lee S. Burridge: Type Writing Machine or Type Writer
The basic function and operation of the typewriter has been incorporated into today's computers and word processors.  

4.  William B. Pervis: The Fountain Pen
Before this new invention that has a built-in ink reservoir that would automatically feed ink to the point of the pen, people had to carry around bottles of ink (inkwells) to fill their fountain pens.

5.  Joseph H. Dickinson: The Player Piano or what is know as The Piano Player today
This was used to play all forms of music for every occasion; it became an indispensable form of entertainment.

6.  Robert F. Flemmings, Jr.  The Guitar
Flemmings made improvements which enhanced the melodic tones and increased the volume in the guitar strings. He made it more sensitive to the touch which made it easier on the fingers while playing.

7.  W. A. Lavalette: The Printing Press
Lavalette made overall improvements to the earlier model of the printing press. His improvements to the construction of the press made it faster, easier to use and the actual printing easier to read.

8.  Joseph Hunter Dickinson:  The Arm for Recording Machine
Dickinson's invention helped to improve the sound quality of the earlier model of record player. The tone arm gave a richer tone to the record and the horn helped to control the volume so that the music could be heard from a greater distance.
