Adventures of Ojemba is the story of the Igbo people. In contrast to many historical narratives, Dr. Chukwuma J. Obiagwu chooses to avoid dwelling on any particular issue in history and it's effect on the Igbo people. Rather, he provides the readers with a general overview of their culture, traditions, habits, and general life. Tracing the historical context and their beginnings, this book addresses major events faced by these people. It is inevitable that basic questions such as "who are the Igbo people?" provoke a plethora of theories, explanations, and questions. This study provides clear insight on what distinguishes the Igbo people from other neighboring peoples. It is a supplement to Dr. Elizabeth Isichie's history text, The History of Igbo People, and compliments this text by providing more probable answers to the origins of these people. Dr. Obiagwu's main theory proposes that the Igbo people are descendant of the black Jewish population. A common view of historians throughout time, Obiagwu thoroughly develops this argument through his assessment of the aspects of the Igbo people's lives.
