INFORMATION AND RESOURCES
The SANKOFA African Heritage Awareness, Inc., (SAHA), is a 501 (c) (3) public charity, and as such, donations are deductible under The Internal Revenue Service Code.
As natural subjects in the Africana Diaspora (MAAFA), we must always recognize the value in proclaiming the rich, and yet, greatly untold historicity of Mother Afrikan and the debilitating tribulations leading to the Africa MAAFA, the scattering, that coincidentally, forged a race of people with greater stamina, global and diverse cultures that have maintained vibrancy since primeval antiquity to the present-day. For too long, academia has allowed ubiquitous and prejudicial writings, mythical ideas and diabolical fables that Africa’s contributions to global progress have been very limited, and/or questionable, as if to say, if there were any humanitarian achievements or accomplishments what so ever, since to many, Africa remains that “Dark Continent.” Understanding that America has more than 45,000.000 citizens of African origin, and yet, the persistency of such inane ideas, practices and advocacies, gives sufficient reason to insist on the mandatory teachings, to some degree, of African Education in the public school systems across the nation.
