      Did you ever wonder who invented the Cell Phone? Ok, let’s say that you are
      On a TV game show and have to answer this question to win $10M. The question
      Is, who invented the cellular phone? In all probability most of us could not
      Answer this question. Those of you who know are in a very small minority.

      The inventor of the Cellular phone is Henry Sampson, Jr. Sampson is an
      African-American from Jackson , Mississippi . He attended Morehouse and
      Transferred to Purdue. He received an MS in Engineering from the University
      Of California (Go Bears). He was awarded an MS in Nuclear Engineering from
      Illinois and his Ph.D from Illinois . Sampson is the first African-American
      To receive a Ph.D in Nuclear Engineering.

      In 1971 Sampson was awarded a patent for the “gamma-electric cell.” This
      Technology was used in the cellular phone. Hopefully Dr. Sampson was well
      Rewarded for his efforts.

      All right, now that you have this information join the “Tell a Brother Club”
      By passing this information on to more individuals who are uninformed.
      (Barbershops and Beauty Salons are great places to discuss this info).
      During the week let the entire world know about Dr. Sampson. This is called
      The “Breakdown the Stereotype Campaign.”
