"Sankofa" is an Akan symbol meaning “go back and fetch it.” Sankofa was preserved by ancestors throughout the African Diaspora and is still commonly referenced today.
Sankofa encourages us to learn from the past so we can build stronger futures. But what if the future actually dictates the past?
We have the power to tap into our collective Black genius, imaginations, and historic ancestral tools to radically (re)create more Black liberated futures. Rethinking Sankofa through a BQF lens is just one of infinite examples.
