Keneisha Harrington, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership at Kennesaw State University. Her research centers the experiences of African Americans within and throughout the public education system. Committed to the wellness of Black Womyn, Keneisha started this community after she recognized a profound need for mentorship during her transition into the professoriate, and realized she would need support in remaining grounded and striving towards self-actualization while serving in an academic role.
