A Tale of Two Lonnie Johnsons



Have you ever heard about Lonnie Johnson? Well for those of you who have the Black Scientists & Inventors Book 6 the answer most likely is yes as Mr Johnson is one of the featured personalities in the book. Now before those of you who have not got the book yet and try to search for him on the internet, please be careful, that is, make sure your search results give you the Lonnie Johnson that you are looking for. I like many others made the mistake of reading about another Johnson but it was serendipity that I found the other one who is a equally famous for his life works. Below is a small piece about these two great pioneers and inventors.
