Description

Sarah E.Goode was one of the first African-American women to get a U.S. patent. Working in her husband's furniture store, she recognized a need for a multi-use bed and through hard work, ingenuity, and determination, invented her unique cupboard bed. She built more than a piece of furniture. She built a life far away from slavery, a life where her sweet dreams could come true.
