​It's another powerfully Black, powerfully feminine Junebug x Ashé collaboration! The Sankofa Circle is an inter-generational gathering of artists, activists, scholars, culture bearers and culture keepers in exchange and celebration of our collective glory!
Sankofa is an African word/symbol derived from the Akan tribe of Ghana. It symbolizes the quest for knowledge through patient, critical and intelligent investigation. It is from the wisdom of the past that we ensure a brighter future.
The premiere of The Sankofa Circle is moderated by our very own Stephanie McKee-Anderson and features Black woman theater icons Adella Gautier, Lauren Turner, Kaia Livers, and Dr. Doris Derby, with a special video tribute to recent ancestors Carol Sutton and Sherri Marina.
