How It All Began

Global Ex Education is the vision of me--Dr. Jenaya Perdue. I'm a global educator whose life mission is to show that the world belongs to all of us. As a Black American author, expat, and ethical globe trotter, I know that we all must see people who look like us in literature and abroad.  

Global Ex Education is the beginning of a movement to bring the world to every kid's home and classroom. I do this through books, technology, and excellent customer service. I prioritize connecting with people all over the world to make my vision happen. To date, I have equitably hired people in 8 countries. This means that your purchase and support helps individuals all over the world feed their families, showcase their home, hone their craft, and make a happier future for those they love.

The Melanated Stamps Book Series' first book is Gerri Goes to China. Written in English, Spanish, and Chinese, readers learn about what daily life is like for a Chinese family. The China bundle includes this book, the China Passport Activity Book and I Can See...China: Travel Photography and Writing Prompts. Coming in 2023 are bundles for Greece, South Korea, and Ghana! People often ask me how many books I plan to write. My simple answer is, "Well, there are 198ish countries. I'll write until I get tired!"Click here to check out the Global Ex Shop to see our learning materials and bundles. We have digital and physical products for all budgets!
