Today in Black History – The Emancipation Proclamation, 1863

In 1885, Woods patented a apparatus which was a combination of a telephone and a telegraph.

In 1987, Woods developed his most important invention to date – a device he called Synchronous Multiplex Railway Telegraph. A variation of the “induction telegraph,” it allowed for messages to be sent from moving trains and railway stations. By allowing dispatchers to know the location of each train, it provided for greater safety and a decrease in railway accidents.  Read More Here…

Singer. Songwriter. Legacy. So much can be said about El DeBarge, Jr. yet the first that should come to mind is a man standing on his on two feet…on the shoulders of giants. El’s early influence in music was natural yet the first steps into his career began when he toured with hip hop notable DJ Quick. He released a compilation entitled “The Growing” in 2008 under his InFaM label where he is the CEO and its catalyst. He is a member of the KTK Productions squad, a group formed by himself and DJ Quik’s nephews Rodney and Keya. El just released his solo CD entitled the “Lion’s Den”.
