Douglass Academy traces its origin to 1869 when it opened for the children of freed African-American slaves in what is now downtown San Antonio. In 1902 it was named for the anti-slavery orator and statesman. The school was relocated as a high school to its present site in 1915. It became a junior high in 1932. Beginning in 1970 Douglass served as a school for grades 3 through 5. In 2002 while students attended the former Burnet Elementary campus on Barrera St. the school expanded to include pre-kindergarten through 2nd grade. In 2004 6th grade was added making the school a pre-kindergarten through 6th grade academy. Students and staff returned to their original campus when the construction project was completed in August.
What you may know is that my mother bought me my first underwear at thirteen (a milestone I celebrated by putting that thing on and pulling it up to make sure my peers noticed that social promotion-that is once she told me that the tag goes on the back). You also may be aware of how she came to visit me at Kangundo Hospital, where I was admitted suffering from Malaria, and then she removed her shoes and handed them to me-I was 17. What is astonishing is how much my mother, a sixth-grade dropout, influenced my life-a revelation I am going through since she came to visit my family early this month. It is our first time to see her in eleven years.
