Garrett Morgan

THANK AN INVENTOR - BLACK HISTORY MONTH: Stop! Ok, go. With only an elementary school education, Black inventor (and son of an enslaved parent), Garrett Morgan came up with several significant inventions, including the improved sewing machine and the gas mask. However, one of Morgan's most regularly used inventions was the improved traffic light. Without his innovation, drivers across the nation would be directed by a two-light system.

George Crum BHM
THANK AN INVENTOR - BLACK HISTORY MONTH: How many chips did you dip yesterday? You have George Crum to thank for the tasty snack. As the story goes, Mr. Crum, a chef and restaurateur, unintentionally created the potato chip during the summer of 1853. They were made in response to a customer who sent back their fried potatoes after complaining they were too thick. The crisps were an instant hit, and though Crum never patented the creations, chips are arguably now one of the world's favorite snacks.

What types of things should I report? If it makes you uncomfortable, submit a tip. It will be up to your school to determine what the next steps are. Do you think someone is going to harm themselves? Did you see something scary that concerns you online? Submit this kind of thing.

Safe2Say Something is the easiest way to let someone know that there is a problem and let them handle it. The best part is, they will never know who it was that submitted it. It’s that simple.
