Granville T. Woods was a black inventor who received at least 50 government patents for his numerous inventions. Over a dozen of these patents were for electric train inventions, but the majority of them were for electrical control and distribution. The induction telegraph, a technique for communication with and from moving trains, was his most notable invention. Granville T. Woods was dubbed “the black Thomas Edison” by many.
