On January 16, 2016, TCXPI Afrocentric Young Scholars Saturday School Program began its First Session, at Impact Hub Oakland. Eleven young scholars from community schools have enrolled in engaging awareness of African history and its many contributions made by African descendants to World and Human Civilization.
Held on Saturdays, TCXPI SSP brings Afrocentric Education to the Bay Area community, education that is not normally seen in our public school curriculum.
The Chinue X Project, Inc. (TCXPI) is the creation of Cynthia Chinue X Cornelius, MA.Ed. As an Oakland native, a product of the OPS, and mother to the same, Cynthia is all too familiar with the curriculum and how it has omitted, distorted and negated the many contributions made by people of African descent. She holds a Bachelors in Africana Studies, and a Masters in Equity and Social Justice in Education both from San Francisco State University. In 2011, she establish a 501(c)3 in Maryland as a vehicle to disseminate Black History Facts and to bring awareness to African and African American History. She has a following on Facebook and features a page that focuses soley on Daily African/Black History Facts entitled On This Day In TCXPI History. Cynthia believes that the time is now for our nation’s public school systems to become culturally relevant and inclusive in what is taught in schools.
TCXPI’s goal for 2016 is to hold FOUR FREE six-week sessions beginning the second Saturdays of the months of January, April, July, and October. Each session will include engaging African-centred or Afrocentric activities that will facilitate instruction to each scholar in the history of their heritage and culture.

If a race has no history, if it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world, and it stands in danger of being exterminated.
