HIDDEN GENIUS
Frank Mann
The Black Engineer Behind Howard Hughes
by H. T. B r y e r and Paul Bryer

Frank Mann had the deck stacked against him
from the very start. A Black child born to an unwed
mother in 1908 Texas didn’t have much hope
of becoming a success in life. But in 1919, on a
dusty Houston airfield, young Frank met a kindred
soul—a boy named Howard Hughes. It was the
start of a lifelong friendship, and together, these
two men would help revolutionize the world with
their unique inventions and designs. However,
because Frank was Black, he did not always receive
the credit he deserved and few people today have heard of his many accomplishments.
Hidden Genius tells the little-known story of a talented
aeronautical and aerospace engineer, award-winning sports car designer,
soldier of fortune, WWII officer, and primary civilian instructor for the
famed Tuskegee Airmen.

Five Star Review on Amazon By Wallace J. Tauriac

My wife and I read this book. I could not put it down. So I read it in few hours. The story about Frank Mann is interesting, revealing, heart warming, and necessary. Not only does it appreciates a black man’s life accomplishments, but it highlights people of different backgrounds appreciation of each other. I thoroughly enjoyed the book! I highly recommend others to read it. It’s the kind of story that would make a good movie.
