To answer, or send to voice mail... that is the question. Dr. Shirley Jackson is an American physicist who received her Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1973. She was the first African-American woman to earn a doctorate in nuclear physics at MIT. Her experiments with theoretical physics paved the way for numerous developments in the telecommunication space including the touch-tone telephone, the portable fax, caller ID, call waiting, and the fiber-optic cable.

THANK AN INVENTOR - BLACK HISTORY MONTH: nothing says summer like a water fight. Meet Lonnie Johnson, the man that gave us the Super Soaker. Lonnie wasn’t a toy maker, he was actually an Aerospace Engineer for NASA with a resume boasting a stint with the US Air Force, work on the Galileo Jupiter probe and Mars Observer project, and more than 40 patents.

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.

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.
