Did you ever wonder who invented the Cell Phone? Ok, let's say that you are On a TV game show and have to answer this question to win $10M. The question is, who invented the cellular phone? In all probability most of us could not answer this question. Those of you who know are in a very small minority.
The inventor of the Cellular phone is Henry Sampson, Jr. Sampson is an African-American from Jackson , Mississippi . He attended Morehouse College and transferred to Purdue. He received an MS in Engineering from the University Of California. He was awarded an MS in Nuclear Engineering from Illinois and his Ph.D from Illinois . Sampson is the first African-American to receive a Ph.D in Nuclear Engineering.
In 1971 Sampson was awarded a patent for the "gamma-electric cell." This technology was used in the cellular phone. Hopefully Dr. Sampson was well rewarded for his efforts.
All right, now that you have this information join the "Tell a Brother Club" by passing this information on to more individuals who are uninformed.
Peace be upon you
