"When an old person dies, it's like a library burning down."

                                                       Alex Haley

             Sankofa is part of traditional Akan wisdom and represents a cultural link between the living and the dead, the past and present and t​he present linked to the future.    The Sankofa Bird reminds us that we must continue to move forward as we remember our past. And at the same time we plant a seed for the future generations that come after us.
