Fact-checking Joe Biden’s "A Black Man Invented The Lightbulb, Why Don't We Teach History?"
Biden wants fact checkers at his debates....
During a town hall with residents of Kenosha, Wisconsin Old Balls, Biden wondered why schools don't teach history in history class anymore.
English chemist Humphry Davy developed the first incandescent light in 1802, followed by the first practical electric arc light in 1806. Efforts by Swan and Edison led to commercial incandescent light bulbs, Edison hired Lewis Howard Latimer (The Black guy Biden may be referring to) in 1884, as a draftsman and an expert witness in patent litigation on electric lights.
