The Cincinnati Enquirer published an article on July 28th, in which singer Chaka Khan described her involvement in Scientology's World Literacy Crusade.
"I'm starting a foundation, the Chaka Khan Foundation,' she explains. 'We deal with women and children in crisis. I'll be launching that in a couple months time. And I teach art classes twice a week in Compton to kids in the World Literacy Crusade and other kids in the neighborhood there.'
"She says that she and Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., are scheduled to meet with Hillary Clinton on a project to bring more arts education into public schools, 'and get Ritalin out of our schools. And we want to build a co-op for women and children for medical care and job training and child care facilities and the whole bit,' she gushes, finally stopping for a breath."
