Since 2011, I have shared Daily Black History Facts on Facebook and other social media outlets.
It has been such an Education and Awareness for me to kearn about the many significant contributions my African/Black Ancestors made to world and human civilization AND to share it with the world and my social circles.
I am so grateful to have had the ability to create daily images of people, places, and events in Black History and to have been able to share with the masses. I have gained a true following, those hungry for knowledge of where they come from, who they are, and how they fit in in society and the world.
My daily ritual to awake and research Black History Facts in order to present to my Fb family, friends, and acquaintances has become something that I look forward to each morning. On some days, I will spend most free days reading and researching Our Story and the many contributions made by people of African descent to world and human civilization.
Through my sharing of "On This Day In TCXPI History", I had a "Vision" to create a Saturday School Program for our Children and Youth in the Oakland Community.
Beginning January 16, 2016, I will bring this Vision to reality when I hold the FIRST class in Oakland of the TCXPI Afrocentric Children and Youth Saturday School Program, A Free Program.
My name is Cynthia Chinue X Cornelius. I hold Bachelors in Africana Studies and a Masters in Equity and Social Justice in Education both obtained from San Francisco State University. I am establishing the TCXPI Afrocentric Children and Youth Saturday School Program. This free program will be offered as a non-traditional school program to children of all ages and will consist of a variety of Afrocentric activities and discussions that will directly relate to the African heritage and culture beginning with Kemet (better known as Egypt) and ending with today. Those activities will include field trips of nearby libraries, museums, local events, and student-based projects. All of the activities will acknowledge the contributions of Africans and Blacks to World and Human civilization.
By studying and discussing these contributions of the Ancestors, our goal is to bring about a Spirit of Self-Love, Self-Respect, and Self-Love within each student, and to develop in each student a need to seek and research independently Black History.
The Saturday School Program will run for 6 weeks, meeting each Saturday from 9-12pm. The first session will begin Saturday, January 16th at Impact Hub Oakland. Each subsequent session will begin in April, July, and October. In addition to the aforementioned activities, there will also be guest speakers who will present on various subject matters. Each activity will be engaging for all involved.
