Lewis H. Latimer (1848-1928) was an African American inventor whose innovations in designing carbon filaments ushered in the age of electric light. Latimer was the son of fugitive slaves, a self-taught master draftsman, an expert on patent law, a poet, and painter--in short, a Renaissance man. The historic Victorian home of Lewis Latimer stands now as a testament to this talented and gracious man.
