Over the course of the last three decades, the ancient Afrikan/Akan concept of Sankofa has achieved a progressivley greater familiarity and popular usage. its popularity can be explained only partially by “indigenization” – a growing international repsonse to the forces of “globalization.” For the Afrikan world, Sankofa represents a much more fundamental expression of cultural connectedness. The Sankofa
Movement describes the fundamental nature of the intuitive urge among Afrikan people to reconnect with the essence of traditional Afrika, and it addresses the unresolved issues of survival and development raised by such luminaries as Marcus Garvey, Martin Delaney, Drusilla Houston, Yaa Asantewa, Kwame Nkrumah and countless other Afrikan teachers, Warriors and Healers.
