The same summer, there were riots in Beaumont, Texas and Harlem, New York.

1975 - At the age of 68 years old, Ralph was alive when in January, Popular Mechanics featured the Altair 8800 on it's cover. The Altair home computer kit allowed consumers to build and program their own personal computers. Thousands were sold in the first month.
