TCXPI Free Afrocentric Children and Youth Saturday School Program Educational Fund
We are asking for your support in donations in making our FREE Saturday School Program a SUCCESS.
Saturday, January 16, 2016, TCXPI will begin its first of four 6-week sessions on African/Black-Centered, Afrocentric Education at Impact Hub Oakland. Each Saturday we will come together with children and youth of ages 5-16 to educate them on the many contributions that the Ancestors have made to World and Human Civilization.
Historically our nations’ public school systems have omitted or distorted the rich history of Africans and Black in America and Africa. These omissions and distortions have forced children and youth to assimilate and acclimate to mainstream ideology, an ideology that does reflect who they are in society. It is my opinion and belief that if a child has knowledge of his/her Ancestor’s and the history that they created, the child will have a holistic view of where they come from.
Dr. Carter G. Woodson, the Father of Black History Week/Month said it best: “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.”
TCXPI SSP’s main objective is to foster a sense of pride, self-worth, and self-respect in students by presenting - in a variety of educational ways – those contributions. Some of the ways would include but are not limited to - Afrocentric projects, field trips, workshops, presentations, weekly student assignments, writing/literature, music/dance, and arts/crafts.
Currently, we are seeking donations to create and maintain our FREE program for our young scholars.
