Sweet Blackberry’s Garrett’s Gift tells the inspiring story of African American inventor Garrett Morgan.

As a young boy, Garrett doesn’t know what he’s good at. He always seems to be getting into trouble. Upon moving to the big city, Garrett witnesses a series of collisions. His creative thinking and imagination lead him to invent the traffic signal.

Garrett’s Gift teaches us that we are all given a gift, but what’s most important is that we give that gift back to the world.

Illustrated by Coretta Scott King award-winner R. Gregory Christie, and narrated by Queen Latifah, Garrett’s Gift will encourage young an old alike to expand their imagination and creative mind.
