Vivien Thomas

It seems I neglected to mention him.

Of particular interest because he was born near part of my ancestral geography.

(peculiar for me that where he was born was so remote as to be referred to as "near" LP)

There is a movie based around some of his work, Something the Lord Made.

I find at least a hair overwrought in tone, though not oppressive by any means.

(I really liked much of what Mos Def was doing in it)
