Elijah McCoy: How did this Black scientist reinvented the world?

His name is Elijah J. McCoy. He was born in 1844 in Colchester, Ontario in Canada to George and Mildred (Goins) McCoy, who were African Americans. They were runaway slaves who had escaped from Kentucky on a clandestine train to Canada. In 1847 the family returned to the United States, settling in Ypsilanti, Michigan.
