Did you know there was an African American owned car manufacturer? The C.R. Patterson & Son Carriage Co. of Greenfield, Ohio became the nation's, and the world's, 1st & only African-American founded & owned car manufacturing company. The company began as a manufacturer of horse drawn carriages & ended up as a manufacturer of buses for both urban transportation systems & rural school needs. In 1915 they came out with a car that was considered more sophisticated than Henry Ford's Model T cars.

Patterson & Sons Company was a carriage building firm, and the first African American-owned automobile manufacturer. The company was founded by Charles Richard Patterson, who was born into slavery in April 1833 on a plantation in Virginia.
