How much do you know about Black history?

Welcome to Tuntimo!

This Black history platform has been designed for children aged 5-11 years old. We want to tell you about notable Black figures and periods that have made history. 


What does Tuntimo mean?

Black history is world history! We wanted to reflect this in a fun and friendly name: 


Tuntum: means black in Twi  (a language spoken in Ghana)


Imo: means knowledge in Yoruba (a language spoken in Nigeria)


= Tuntimo!
