On this date, July 12, in 1949 Frederick M. Jones invents the Air conditioner, patent #2475841.

Frederick McKinley Jones was one of the most prolific Black inventors ever. Frederick Jones patented more than sixty inventions, however, he is best known for inventing an automatic refrigeration system for long-haul trucks in 1935 (a roof-mounted cooling device). Jones was the first person to invent a practical, mechanical refrigeration system for trucks and railroad cars, which eliminated the risk of food spoilage during long-distance shipping trips. The system was, in turn, adapted to a variety of other common carriers, including ships. Frederick Jones was issued this patent, a separate patent, on July 12, 1940 (#2,303,857).


He was awarded 61 patents, mostly having to do with portable refrigeration (which remains the backbone of the modern food distribution system), but also portable X-Ray machines and sound equipment. 
The list of Black US American inventors who shaped the modern world as we know it is loooong. Chinese folks like me are known to randomly mention various items that Chinese culture invented (gunpowder, compass, paper money, toothbrush…see I just did it again); Black US Americans could do the same thing, “oh we invented this, we invented that”. A few examples:
Sarah Boone, the ironing board
Benjamin Banneker, the wooden clock
Henry Blair, the spark plug
Garrett Morgan, the gas mask
James West, the electret microphone
Sarah E. Goode, the cabinet bed
Granville Woods, the synchronous railway telegraph
Daniel Williams, the first open-heart surgery
Henry Brown, the fire safe
Walter Sammons, the hot comb
Phil Brooks, the disposable syringe
Kerrie Holley, the Service Integration Maturity Model
Jerry Lawson, the programmable cartridge-based video game console
and of course I’ll add Elijah McCoy, the Black Canadian who invented the automatic steam engine lubricator, which opened industrialization of the entire continent and led to the expression “The Real McCoy”.

On May 16, 2010, Detroit police officer Joseph Weekley shot and killed 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones during a police raid and on June 18, 2013 his case was declared a mistrial. Aiyana’s young life was cut short by an overzealous officer who raided her home while she slept. Because Weekley’s case was declared a mistrial in June, there is still an opportunity to bring him to justice. On July 25, 2013 Wayne County Judge Cynthia Hathaway reconvene to determine whether Weekley will face retrial for Aiyana’s murder. Please voice your support to retry Joseph Weekley’s case so that a jury may reach a verdict. Aiyana Stanley-Jones represents another Black life taken too soon. Justice must be served.
