About the book series:

Neo and Nubia is a children’s picture book series for young readers (ages 5 to 10) and their families. Cleverly written and beautifully illustrated with a trio of brilliant young explorers. Set in present-day, where a wise man, Nnamdi, is one of the last living keepers of the world's oldest scrolls on which all knowledge is recorded. Unfortunately, his health is declining. So he sends his eight-year-old grandkids, Neo and Nubia, and their schoolmate, Emeka, on a secret quest to save human history from being lost. They go back in time to witness and document our most significant scientific discoveries and developments. From the great migration out of Africa and the first seafaring vessels to the invention of written language, the construction of the pyramids, and more. Together, the kids experience, learn, and grow through these incredible journeys. It’s a world of science and community where the triumphs of our past and the truth of our future connect. This series has been created by a global team of researchers, writers, and illustrators from many waves of the African Diaspora.

About the authors:

Chinwe Onyeagoro and Oby Onyeagoro are the creators of the Neo & Nubia series.

Just like their main characters, they are siblings with roots in Nigeria who grew up in the United States and traveled the world learning about the contributions of the African Diaspora throughout history. Now, with six of their own kids, they are excited to share those same stories with the next generation.

Chinwe lives in the Washington D.C. area and runs a technology company. She is a Harvard University graduate with a degree in Economics. Oby lives in London and works in finance. He studied Electrical Engineering and has a dual masters from Harvard Business School and Harvard School of Education.
