Cymone:Cymone Davis is a changemaker for the community. Originally from Kansas City, MO and at the age 17, she received a full-ride scholarship to Claflin University, a historically black college university in Orangeburg, SC. Cymone was then accepted to Texas A&M University for a Master’s Degree in Media Studies and a graduate certificate in Africana Studies. In 2019, Cymone received a 2nd Master’s Degree in Education with a Teach English as a Second Language concentration and a graduate certificate in International Advocacy and Leadership from Avila University. A year later, Cymone was accepted into the Tulsa Remote program and moved to build an all-black boarding school in the all-black town of Tullahassee, Oklahoma. Soon after, she was elected as Tullahassee’s first Town Manager and focused on land annexation, rebranding, and economic/community rebuilding.
In order to scale resources and services for other black townships, Cymone resigned as Town Manager and created BTMM or Black Towns Municipal Management, LLC. This year, Cymone Davis looks forward to provide more opportunities for U.S. black townships, fundraising for the boarding school-Kingdom Come International, and returning back to school for a Doctorate in Education at the University of Southern California.
