About the Event
The Sankofa Residency is a multi-phase project that is both rooted in the history of Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, NY, and an afro-futurist imagining of BedStuy moving forward. Taking the Ghanian concept of Sankofa-looking backwards in order to move forward-this project uses research, oral history, and collaborative imagining to facilitate a plan for residents, businesses, and stakeholders to emerge from COVID in a place of healing, thriving, and progress.
Come join us anytime from 2-4pm for interactive games, art making, storytelling and dance performances by Kendra J. Ross, Brittany Grier, and Bailey’s Cafe. FREE! Welcome to all ages!
