We are Tuntimo Kids and here are some of our friends!
Welcome to Tuntimo Kids! We are on a mission to learn about Black history and culture on this platform. We want to spotlight some of the contributions and achievements Black people have made throughout history, and learn about their legacy. We know that in school we might not learn enough about Black history, so we want to share our learning journey with you. Tuntimo was made just for us!
