Alycia Wright, M.Ed. is the Founder of Cultural Roots Homeschool Cooperative, a non-profit with the mission of creating a liberated educational space for children of color. Alycia is a former educator turned homeschool parent that launched Cultural Roots in 2016 after struggling to find a cooperative learning space that celebrated her family's African culture & history. The vision of Cultural Roots is to create a cooperative community that nurtures the love of learning and develops a strong cultural/historical awareness in Black & Indigenous children that results in self- love, self- liberation & community empowerment. The non-profit is currently located in an urban setting and plans to launch a second rural site (a forest/farm school) this fall. Alycia lives in Richmond, VA with her husband, four children, and five pets.
