BIRTHDAY SHOUTOUT OF THE DAY GOES OUT TO:

Marie Van Brittan Brown!

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!
