Inventors Hall of Fame


BIHOF serves as the conduit for a broader and deeper interpretive African American experience -past and present. An experience that informs the public of a richly articulated, larger than life community, that has endured the challenge of a lack of franchise to uplift and move a nation forward. And in doing so, imbue a god given, innovative spirit, that owes no apologies for its immense depths of accomplishment. – James Howard, Executive Director, BIHOF
