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, we must always recognize the value in proclaiming the rich, and yet, greatly untold historicity of The Motherland and the debilitating results of the Africa MAAFA, the scattering, that coincidentally, forged a race of greater stamina, with 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, if there have been 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.
Special Announcements and Upcoming Events:
The Sixth Annual International Africa MAAFA Remembrance Day, October 6th and 7th, 2017: Parallelisms of Slavery in African-American and Afro-Cuban Cultures; Speakers: Mary Ludwig, James Peebles and Grete Viddal. More information to come.
