Baby Geniuses: Snapshots Of 7 Of Our Favorite Black Child Prodigies

August 31, 2012 ‐ By Nicole Akoukou Thompson

The Imafidons: Brainiacs

Dubbed the smartest family in Britain, the two youngest siblings, Peter and Paula, made history in 2009 in the UK for being the youngest students to enter secondary school. The twins’ older sister, Christina, was only 11 when she was accepted to study at any undergraduate institution in Britain, while their eldest sibling, Anne-Marie was the youngest girl to pass A-level computing at 13, and another sister, Samantha, was six-years-old when she passed two difficult high school-level statistics and mathematics exams. The children’s father thanks the disadvantaged inner-city youth program, Excellence in Education, and good genes (of course) for his children’s exceptional academics.

    Wow, thanks for this list. What an amazing group of kids!

  • Great stories. If only we could hear about more stories like this. If only ALL of our children lived in homes that allowed them to mentally flourish to the next level.
