BALTIMORE (WJZ)—It's a history lesson wrapped into artwork.
Christie Ileto explains how a Baltimore artist is paying tribute to little known African-American inventors for Black History Month.
Each painting in Mark Cottman's Federal Hill gallery tells a story, but his latest creation tells about 50!
The piece "African-American Inventions" is the Baltimore native's latest invention.
It ties into Black History Month “by giving credit to some of the unsung heroes of inventions that are not really referenced in history books,” Cottman said.
