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.
