The Afrikan Way of Being
Sankofa Retreats are a series of year round retreat gatherings of the diaspora for the purpose of...
 
  • Healing racial trauma through cultural identity, sensitivity, empathy, and respect.
  • Honoring our cultural afrikan ancestral birthright which is our "Right of Passage".​​
  • To connect with our families and our heritage. 
  • To secure our legacy by celebrating our diverse culture.
 
Our sense of home begins with respecting and honoring our diverse cultural identities.

Sankofa Journals

The Sankofa Journals are curated Afro-Centric articles designed to inspire, educated, inform, and to get us thinking about our place in the world. The three volumes are:

 

Keita's Volume 1 and feature Afrikan history, music, repatriation, and more.

 

The Emancipate Afrika volume features over 100 articles on the freedom of colonized Afrikan peoples.

The Diaspora volume among others highlights the return home and a way of Afrikan being. 

The Afrikan Soul

Music moves the soul the following selection are the sounds of the Sankofa Retreats. We have curated music that will stir the soul.

 

Our ancestors are from all over Afrika - the soul of our being has its start in Afrika. The Afrikan soul has been carried into our modern music and has become our Blues, R&B, RAP, Soul music, and every other genre of music from the Afrikan experience.

 

I could go on...but just listen to the Sankofa Retreat sampler playlist.
