The Chinue X Project, Inc., is an African, African-American, and Black-Centered Online Educational Resource created by Cynthia D. Cornelius. It has been created as a personal and educational platform for those that seek Afrocentricity in their existence – to be centered and grounded in African culture, heritage, and history.
As CEO and Founder, a native of Oakland, California, a recipient of a Bachelor’s in Africana Studies, and a Master’s in Equity and Social Justice in Education from San Francisco State University, I realized at an early age that my “AfricanNess” was not being represented in an equitable and justified manner through my educational instruction. As a witness to the disparities of the Oakland community, the activism of the Black Panther Party movement and the unrest over the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the busing in 1971, I recognized early on that Africans in America were at a considerable disadvantage, mentally, economically, socially and educationally.
