Black History Month

Our Black history month spotlight today is on Lonnie Johnson.  Lonnie's fame didn't occur in battle or back in the 1800's like our last few dignitaries.  Mr Johnson did something spectacular in the world of toy inventions... in 1990, he introduced the Super Soaker water gun! He developed the super soaker in the after hours of his day job, which was as an engineer for the NASA jet propulsion lab in Pasadena, California. His invention has racked up over a billion dollars in retail sales and made water fights for kids a more glorious event!! Thank you Mr. Lonnie Johnson!! You can see a picture of Lonnie on the library wall.
