Tick tock went the clock--- for 40 years the clock Benjamin Banneker built kept perfect time. But time didn’t stop this genius from becoming a famous mathematician, astronomer and surveyor. He surveyed the city of Washington, DC with Pierre L’Enfant, published a widely read Almanac and challenged Thomas Jefferson on the issue of slavery. Banneker was always studying something and never stood still. He has a flexible body to keep up with his many jobs and carry all his tools. His telescope lets him gaze at the cosmos. He also comes carrying his trusty Almanac to predict the weather and other forces of nature looming large.
