USPTO features King of Toys, Tuskgee University’s and Mobile, Alabama’s own, Mr. King Lonnie Johnson, inventor of the Super Soaker®! Heeyyy, Tuskegee! Knig Lonnie also successfully led the Nerf dart gun line. Read and listen to the interivew (here).

Again, full circle moment for me. I first listened to him at Tuskegee University in the chapel when I was attending. He inspired me to keep perservering to attain my chemical engineering degree. Thank you, King Lonnie!

Happy Black History Month!
