Have you ever took the time to stop and think about the lives of all the people we consider influencial? Like who was Bill Gates before he was Bill Gates! Or Oprah Winfrey before she was Oprah! Warren Buffett, Steve Jobs, Tyler Perry, Byron Allen, Elon Musk, Beyoncé…the list goes on and on. Wouldn’t it be cool if we could travel back in time and meet these celebrities when they were kids?

Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum

In 2019 PBS KIDS debuted a new animated series called Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum in which the titular character Xavier, along with his sister, Yadina, and their best friend Brad travel back in time to meet real-life historical figures like Marie Curie, Isaac Newton, and George Washington Carver!


Although still early in its inception we already enjoy this series because it shows historically iconic figures in the most relatable way-as kids! As an organization that serves youth we meet a lot of young children that aspire to achieve great things in their lives. By showing iconic figures as children hopefully more kids will feel empowered to be great and follow their dreams!

Hopefully Xavier and the group will meet more entrepreneurs and/or philanthropist!
