Mama Rose as she is affectionately referred to, the founder of Know Thyself Academy, has a B.S. in Communications from the University of Texas at Austin, a M.S. in African American Studies from Prescott College and is currently an Education Doctoral student at Northeastern University. Mama Rose established Know Thyself Academy because she feels, just as the Catholics, Jews, Baptists, Episcopalians and Muslims, have schools that reinforce their teachings and beliefs, it
is necessary that African Americans do the same. It is not feasible to think that an oppressive curriculum and system will educate a child for liberation, therefore African Americans must no longer rely on the current system to educate and empower their children. Educational empowerment can only come after you acknowledge their own worth. An African Centered Education will provide African American children with the self-knowledge needed to free themselves from societal bondages. Mama' Rose's Graduate thesis, When you are Left Behind What do you do? What Core African Centered Practices and Policies might benefit African American students, is the basis for the African Centered Curriculum used at Know Thyself Academy.
