The true meaning of Sankofa

How else can we reach back in order to go forward but to speak with and visit those who have  been here before us.

The students of Sankofa International Academy performed for the Fort Green Senior Citizens Center.  They all enjoyed singing and reciting poems for the seniors.  The seniors also loved hearing words that were near to them and echoed sentiments they  felt.  The biggest reaction was given when the students sang Luis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World”, it was heartwarming when the seniors sang along with the children.
