Film Directors and Producers: Philip Musey and Producer Cabrel Clements

Garrett A. Morgan was a Cleveland-based, African American inventor who most notably created the three-signal traffic light and the precursor to the modern gas mask. Set in 1916, this short film explores the business dilemma Garrett faced after he and his brother Frank used an invention of Garrett’s own making to rescue miners trapped in an underground inferno… and then were left out of the story entirely.
