Kings & Queens we invite you to join us as we wrap up our Juneteenth weekend with a discussion of the importance of taking the Journey back to the Continent. The concept of Sankofa is derived from King Adinkera of the Akan People and it means "its not taboo to go back and fetch what you forgot." The ancestral journey is a personal Homecoming journey that reclaims your cultural roots. Today we discuss why the pilgrimage is a must for people of African Decent.
