A friend sent this video to me and I just want to share it with you this month.
“My African Diaspora professor Fleetwood at Morgan State University showed me this movie, Sankofa and it heightened my awareness to another level while in undergrad. Sankofa means to go back (into your history) and fetch it. The great Mutabaruka is in this as Shango, wearing the Orisa Shango’s color, RED. Directed by Haile Gerima, who has a bookstore/shop across the street of Howard University, titled Sankofa. Purchase this classic, WAKE UP!, KNOW THYSELF, and UNITE, YOUR ANCESTORS ARE CALLING YOU. A DUPE!”
