A Black Man invented the microphone we use every day.

Every podcaster and radio jock in the world has this man to thank for the transmission of their voices to the masses. As a kid, James Maceo West was intrigued by electronics; so much so that he chose to study physics in university. In 1960, after landing a gig at Bell Labs (now Nokia Bell Labs), he invented the foil electret microphone, which was more compact, sensitive, and powerful than anything of its time. It is widely used in many applications today!
