How Black history made 5G possible.

Black and white image of Jesse Russell.

Black contributors and innovators like Jesse Russell, who created the 2G network, made smartphones and networks what they are today. In 1988, Russell led the first team from Bell Laboratories to bring digital cellular technology to the US. Russell also patented dozens of innovations in wireless technology, including base station tech, which transmits radio wave signals to and from mobile devices. From 2G to 5G, we carry on the pursuit of Jesse Russell. Because Black history is American history.

History makers

In 1926, what we now know as Black History Month was first established to acknowledge Black Americans who hadn’t been celebrated in our history. Join us as we honor contributors and leaders—like the ones below—who we believe should be household names.
