Chronicling Resistance Presents: Sankofa (2019)

  • Date: May 7, 2019
  • Time: 1:00pm - 4:30pm

Chronicling Resistance is hosting their final community listening session at the Sankofa Farm! Please click here to read more about Chronicling Resistance and their series of facilitated discussions between activists, archivists, and the general public about resistance, archives, and their existing and possible impact on one another.

About this event:

Sankofa is derived from a saying by the Akan people of West Africa that literally translates, “It is not taboo to go back and fetch what you forgot,” the concept of Sankofa represents a constant practice of remembering. Chronicling Resistance’s final listening session asks activists how they reach back in their activism, how they want their resistance to be remembered, and how the historical record influences their work. Chronicling Resistance will also share what they’ve learned from this phase of the project, share next steps, and close with a tour of Sankofa Farm and dinner! Free and open to all. Children’s activities will be available.

Large portions of our 50+ acre botanical garden can be explored via wheelchair, though some of our paths are currently awaiting repairs and should be used at your own discretion. ADA accessible bathrooms will be available nearby this event. We’re happy to make accommodations for guests with mobility limitations. If you have questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out ahead of the event.
