Do you know that the Ironing Board was invented and Patented by an African American Woman?  Big Shouts out to Sarah Boone who invented the Ironing board!

From wikkipedia –

Sarah Boone (1832-1904) was an African American inventor who on April 26, 1892, obtained United States patent rights for her improvements to the ironing board. Boone’s ironing board was designed to improve the quality of ironing sleeves and the bodies of women’s garments. The board was very narrow, curved, and made of wood. The shape and structure allowed it to fit a sleeve and it was reversible, so one could iron both sides of the sleeve.[1]
