Happy Birthday to the Woman Who Invented CCTV Camera
BIRTHDAY SHOUTOUT OF THE DAY GOES OUT TO:
Marie Van Brittan Brown!
In 1966, she and her husband Albert Brown invented the world’s first Home Security System. The patent was granted in 1969 under the name “Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) Security System.” A female black inventor far ahead of her time, Brown created what was to become the root in a long string of electronic security inventions that continue to flood the market today. Thank you, Ms. Brown, not only for your noble invention, but all the more for being a role figure amongst women and Africans around the globe! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
