An African American 21 year old named Benjamin Banneker invented the clock in the year 1750. He saw a pocket watch, which he was fascinated by, and made a larger version of it, which essentially became the clock.
The word “clock” comes from the German word “Glocke,” which means “bell,” and was, obviously, based off of the sundial. Monks used timepieces that rang bells at the hours of the day that they would go to their prayers. Timepieces weren’t broken into 24 parts until the 14th century when clocks were set in church towers to ring out the time for the townspeople.
