Meet the Creator:

My name is DeLacey A. Yancey. I am a graduate of Michigan State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Science Education and a minor in History. As an educator, it is vital to make information and materials relevant, engaging, and fun so that the learning process can be successful and authentic. In the growing age of technological advancement now occurring in our educational systems, I believe that BlackMVPatents: Art of Innovation can serve as a great resource for students, teachers, administrators, and people all over the world. Not only is this site filled with valuable information of African-American inventors who affect our everyday lives, but it also has games and activities that will help you learn more about their contributions. Thank You to Michigan State University’s Professor David Bailey, MSU History Department Chair Walter Hawthorne, LEADR Lab Director Brandon Locke and the LEADR Lab Team, and Co-Creator Mary Robinson, without their help, this innovative website would not have been possible.
