Support the show on Patreon OR Buy me a coffee Todays Black History Blitz is about a self-taught mathematician, astronomer, compiler of almanacs, a writer, an inventor and the man who may have completed the Design for Washing DC Capitol City of the United States of America from memory. Benjamin Banneker was born November 9th, 1731 on a farm near Baltimore that he would eventually inherit from his father. Although he occasionally attended a one-room Quaker schoolhouse, Banneker was mostly self-educated and did much of his learning through the avid reading of borrowed books. It was noted that from a young age he was particularly skilled at Mathematics. His early accomplishments included constructing an irrigation system for the family farm and a wooden clock that kept accurate time and ran for more than 50 years until his death.
