The word Omera means "one who possess an inspiring and great personality and enjoys having a positive attitude."
Omera Productions, headquartered in Charlotte, NC, is a publishing and multimedia company founded in 2017 by Robyn Abdusamad.
She noticed the lack of African American children represented in books, toys and media when she became a mother. As a result, Omera was created with the goal to produce books and animation that would provide African American children with positive images of themselves.
Omera also provides children with opportunities to S.H.I.N.E. by participating in education forums that promote self-growth.
In addition to the books, animation projects, and S.H.I.N.E forums, Omera also produce a video blog called “Omera and Friends” where various topics including current events that affect the African-American community are discussed. Recorded shows may be seen on her YouTube channel --- Omera TV.
