Sankofa is an Afrocentric Bookstore. One of the very few in all of Canada. And its main purpose is to bring forward the missing link, that of the story of the Kush, Nubian, Kemetic, Moorish and Afrikan story. A lot of times in the west, we are told one part of the story, well Sankofa offers the other part of the story to allow for a more complete picture. Sankofa is a Twi word that translates in English to “Go Back and Bring It” which means -One Must Return to the Past in order to move forward … So we have to know where we are coming from and through this journey we shall know balance.
