Black Inventions: You Can’t Touch That: is a sample of major inventions by African Americans. It is a very small sample of the contributions of people of color. Some, African American youth, if not exposed to their history, find it hard to believe that they are gifted and have God- given talents. This is due, solely, to socialization. This book is expected to improve self-esteem and motivate youth to use their God-given gifts. Koppelman, Kent ( 2014) states, “Race is not a scientific concept but a social reality dictated by the color of one’s skin, even though skin color as a basis for human categorization is absurd. African Americans are identified as black, yet the skin color for many African Americans is more accurately described a brown. Contrary to the racist term “redskin” the skin color for Native Americans is not red. Yellow is an inaccurate description of skin color of those of Asian heritage. ……….The concept of race is both easy and difficult to discuss. Most Americans believe they know the meaning of the term, yet we have no specific set of racial categories acceptable to the scientific community.”Koppelman, K. L. (2014). Understanding Human Differences Multicultural Education for a Diverse America. New York, NY: Pearson
