What Our members Say

K. enjoyed the Sankofa zoom calls and he definitely has more pride and increased awareness of his African history. Before, interest was limited but now there are more questions and an interest in learning the language. We hope your project can be a venue for youth to work through some of [the issues our Black youth are currently facing with anti-Black racism]. Thank you.
