About Apostle Claver
Apostle Claver T. Kamau-Imani is the president & CEO of RagingElephantsRadio.com, a digital media company founded in 2013.
Claver has lived in House District 138 since 1997 and is a 5th generation Texan. Claver and the former Barbara McDonald were married on August 31, 2019. Together they are raising her beautiful daughter Jasmine. Claver and Barbara are proud to be new homeschoolers.
RagingElephantsRadio.com (RER) is a Texas-centric news company with an admitted bias toward liberty. Audio streaming news and commentary 24/7, RagingElephantsRadio.com is the first-of-its-kind information service. Claver hosts a nightly political talk show, as well.
The precursor to RER was Claver’s RagingElephants.org. The primary mission was to grow the conservative voting base through racial diversity – to challenge voters of color to vote their conservative, Judeo-Christian values. It was created to be an advocate of conservative-libertarian social, economic and political issues, to influence office holders, and to educate and organize the electorate.
RagingElephants.org was a counterweight to liberal organizations like MoveOn, Emily’s List, and Organizing for America. After initially establishing a multi-state operational footprint in Texas, Missouri, Kansas, Ohio, Maryland, California, Rhode Island, and other states, RagingElephants.org decided to focus all of its efforts and resources solely in Texas.
Claver was the founder and former senior pastor of the Corinthian Christian Empowerment Center (CCEC) in Houston, Texas.
CCEC’s primary ministry was urban missionary work and assisted living. As Christian community, CCEC housed the homeless, the addicted, those escaping the sex industry, those recently released from incarceration, and the mildly mentally ill. CCEC also established a hospice for the poor where they were cared for, loved, and possibly expire in an atmosphere of dignity.
Claver grew up in Beaumont, Texas within a home of politics and civil rights. Both of his parents were active leaders in Democratic Party politics, the civil rights movement, and the Missionary Baptist Church. His first assignment in political activism was at nine years old when his parents instructed him on how to do voter registration in the housing projects of Beaumont after Sunday church service. Claver has been a political activist for over 40 years.
Claver earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications from Lamar University.
