11Missing: physics. Elmer Samuel Imes was the second African American to earn a Ph.D. in physics and the first in the 20th century. He was among the first African-American scientists to make important contributions to modern physics. While working in industry, he gained four patents for instruments to be used for measuring magnetic and electric properties.

As an academic, he developed and chaired the department of physics. According to renowned American historian and linguist Leo Weiner of Harvard University, one of the strongest pieces of evidence to support the fact that Black people sailed to America before Christopher Columbus was a journal entry from Columbus himself.

Blackening Europe reverses this pattern by using African American culture as the starting point for a discussion of its influences over traditional European structures.
