"We believe in an educaional system that will give to our people a knowledge of self. If a man does not have knowledege of himself and his position in society and the world, then he has little chance to relate to anything else. (Bobby Seale, 1970)

Cynthia Cornelius has formed TCXP, Inc. a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation that will deliver African-Centered educational resources and services to all individuals – children, youths, and adults -seeking true knowledge on the history of Africans and African Americans and their significant contributions made to World Civilization and the building of the Americas. TCXP, Inc. will provide credible and valid African-Centered curriculum, books, scholarly articles, links, and websites that will show Ancestral contributions made within all aspects of society.
"A Lifetime Journey Towards Education Inclusive Of All African and African American History, Not Just Part Of It." This is the CEO and Founder's motto as she sets out on her quest for her African-Centered transformation. A transformation that is long overdue. A transformation that concludes instruction, acculturation and assimilation in a mainstream worldview.
Cynthia Cornelius (Chinue X), a current graduate student in Equity and Social Justice in Education at San Francisco State University, calls upon her education and instruction both within and without the classroom to create this much needed organization in order to provide an alternative to the current educational systems that continues to educate children of color with oppressive and inferior curriculums. As a product of this system and a parent of the same, she knows first-hand how this system and society, as a whole can, perpetuate and encourage inferiority and worthlessness, which promotes self-hate and hatred for the inherited race.
Her passion and life-long quest is to study, research, and disseminate an accurate history on African Ancestral contributions - from Ancient African Civilization to current time - that will encourage and promote a sense of self-respect, self-determination, self-love, self-pride, and self-worth and in turn, Love for self, family and community.
