Annie Minerva Turnbo Malone
Annie Minerva Turnbo Malone was born in Metropolis, Illinois, in 1869. A lot of historians
credited Malone as being the United States first Black millionaires, although many
historians credit Madame C.J. Walker as the first millionaires.
Before starting her business in hair care, Walker was a student of Malone. During the 1920s, Malone
was reported to have been worth 14 million dollars. Malone's fortune was made by becoming one of the most famous
black women inventors by developing of non-damaging hair straighten products, hair growers and conditioners
and tetter reliefs.
Under the name "Poro" Malone built not only a financial empire, but also Poro College (1917), aimed
at educating the Black community of St. Louis. The college trained women as agents for Poro products
and by 1926 claimed to have graduated some 75,000 agents located throughout the world including the
Caribbean. Giving back, at one time she was reported to have been supporting two full-time students
in every Black land-grant college in the nation.

the idea of television, with its images located flatly behind a screen, to having three dimensional projections
appear as though they were right in your living room.
After receiving a degree in physics, Valerie Thomas worked at NASA as a mathematical data analyst. Later served
as project manager for the development of NASA's image-processing system on Landsat, the first satellite to send
images from outer space.
