Black History Month – Feb 3: Sarah E. Goode

I am so glad to see that over the years, through it all, African Americans find a way to succeed. Here is a great example of that with Sarah E. Goode:

  • Sarah E. Goode was an entrepreneur and inventor.
  • She was the first African American woman to receive a United States patent.
  • Goode was born in 1850 into slavery.
  • She was freed after the American Civil War and proceeded to open a furniture store in Chicago, Illinois.
  • She noticed that those who lived in apartments in the city had very little space for beds, so she invented a folding cabinet bed and received patent for it on July 14, 1885.
  • When the cabinet bed was folded up it looked like a desk, including spaces for writing instruments and storage.
