Sankofa at Home

What is Sankofa @ Home?

Since 2017, Transform Minnesota has facilitated multiple Sankofa trips to the Southeastern United States. These trips are designed as a spiritual journey or pilgrimage through the history of slavery and civil rights in America.

While there is much to be learned throughout the Southeast, the practice of Sankofa does not need to be limited to these trips. There is much we can learn from the history of race and racism embedded in the foundation of our own state.

With this in mind, we are creating a series of posts we’re calling Sankofa @ Home.

Sankofa @ Home provides an opportunity to experience a self-guided exploration of locations that speak to different aspects of this history. Each post will provide information about at least one location you can visit, along with additional resources you can interact with. 

New posts added monthly! Follow us on social media pages or subscribe to our eNewsletter to stay up to date on each installment!
