Additional Info

Sankofa means to go back and get, to fetch, to retrieve, to return to. The metaphor of the Sankofa bird in Black culture is to go back to the past and bring forward the lessons that carry through time. In the symbolism of the Sankofa bird is the connection of who we are today to who we were before to who we continue to become. It is the acknowledgment of the survival and endurance of Black people and culture. Reflecting on the past teaches, energizes, and guides because the journey never stops.
