Sankofa_meaning 2017-03-23T20:09:32+00:00

Sankofa is a word that is derived from the Twi language in Ghana. It translates as “Go Back & Get it.” San meaning “return,” ko meaning “to go,” and fa meaning “fetch, to seek and take.” Quite literally, look back to see where you came from. Use the wisdom gained from your journey so far, and apply it to your challenges.

“The other day while engaged in conversation with a good friend, I mentioned the word Sankofa. My friend was unfamiliar with the term, and as I began to explain, I instructed her to do further research. Together we were led to share this same knowledge with you. If you’re not familiar with the term, we invite you to get connected. Join us in sharing the meaning of Sankofa with your friends and loved ones.” —Dr. Jeralyn B. Major
