Rudy Massamba

Interviewee & Author

We interviewed Rudy Massamba for our episode on Frederick McKinley Jones, the man who invented mobile refrigeration and was the first person of African descent to receive the National Medal of Technology.

Rudy is an author who writes primarily about Africa’s industrialization and development. After founding a platform that enabled African inventors to share their innovations, he gathered enough information to write Debunking Myths Around African Talent in 2017. He is currently working on a project to support his contention that Africa’s continued industrial and economic development is dependent on integrating African languages and writing systems in the fields of science and technology.
