Sankofa Culture and Art Festival

  • Commodore Barry Park FLUSHING AVENUE AND NORTH ELLIOT PLACE Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States (map)

Historically, through art, entertainment, and mass media, African people and people of African descent have been portrayed as less in quality than those of European background. The damage created by a Eurocentric view of the world is immeasurable. The mission of the Sankofa Culture and Art Festival organizers is to create an experience that celebrates the contributions to global society by African people, through food, culture, and art as a part of the work to discredit and undo notions of inferiority among African children, youth, and elders.
