I am so excited to see that this researcher/author is filling the void by adding science-related books about Black children to the vast collection of children's books! I am looking forward to sharing these books with my friends' children and my niece and nephew. Thank you, Dr. Mutegi!

About The Author
Jomo W. Mutegi, Ph.D. is a mild-mannered professor by day and a relentless revolutionary by night. As a professor, Dr. Mutegi’s area of expertise is science education. He studies the participation of African people in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). He received a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Chemistry and Biology from Gannon University; and he received a Doctorate in Science Education from Florida State University. He has published numerous manuscripts summarizing his research findings and theoretical arguments. He has taught thousands of prospective and practicing teachers, as well as K-12 students. He has helped to guide the research careers of several very accomplished STEM education researchers.

As a revolutionary, Dr. Mutegi is guided by the counsel of Dr. Amos Wilson who reminds us that, “The function of education is to secure the survival of a people.” To this end he has committed himself to creating educational materials aimed at securing the survival the African people. These include curricular materials (e.g. lessons, modules, units, workshops, courses, activities, readers, and books) that can be used in both formal and non-formal settings. Most of these curricular materials focus primarily on STEM subject areas as they are relevant to African people.
