Google honors the Black inventor who likely inspired the phrase ‘the real McCoy’

Subject

Inventor; Elijah McCoy; The Real McCoy; Google

Description

Pull up Google on Monday, and you’ll see a doodle of a Black man next to a stack of patents, gazing at an old-fashioned train. That’s Elijah McCoy, the revolutionary Black inventor who was born 178 years ago today. McCoy’s parents escaped slavery in Kentucky on the Underground Railroad and settled in Canada, where they gave birth to their son in 1844.
