Mark Sandlin made this great little wind-up Flash. I have to admit a little confusion here in that I don't know if there was ever an African American to don the mantle of the Flash. There was a super-fast member of the Global Guardians named Impala who was first introduced in relation to the Flash, but he had a very different uniform. Anyway, regardless, the flying dirt and the hand-crank background here are brilliant. - Oops, further information helps here. He built this for his friend who is both African American and a huge fan of the Flash. Be sure to watch the video.
