Celebrating Black History Month: Innovator & Engineer Frederick McKinley Jones

With contributions in various industries, including film, radio, medicine, and transportation, Jones’ legacy continues to positively impact the world today. Without his invention of the portable refrigeration unit, the frozen foods industry and large supermarkets would not be possible. Thanks to Jones’ inventions, it is possible to distribute fresh produce, meat, flowers and other productions across the nation, regardless of the season.
