Center of Work & Knowledge's

philosophy and goal is to give Afrikan centered direction to the education, not indoctrination, of Afrikan children thus preventing the assimulation of euro-values that our children suffer from in public schools. Our objectives include an integration of a high level of academic performance with enriched Afrikan cultural-historic awareness & relevance.

McClendon Institute for Learning

is an Afrikan Independent School which has existed for over 10 years in Dayton Ohio. We are in the process of receiving our charter and certifications status. We have already received our state and federal tax exempt status.

COWAK & MIL are both housed in the home school environment this year, though MIL does have an educational facility at 2100 W. Martin Luther King, Jr. Way (third street), Dayton OH that is not being used due to lack of funds. COWAK is having an ongoing fund raiser as We are not subsidised by tax dollars or funding. We are also seeking sponsors and scholarship sponsors for our students. COWAK & MIL are kindegarden to 12th grade schools.


Center of Work & Knowledge's ongoing fundraiser is the sale of original music-compositions and recordings, performances, writings,and Afrikan art (sketches and writings) by Rev.
