Sankofa - Written by Meatta Kromah and illustrated by Karen Katume
T.A.P. Projects Education Director Meatta Kromah published her first book Sankofa in December 2021. Meatta worked with Branfluenzas the incredible collective of Ghanian illustrators and animators to complete this project.
Sankofa Pronounced [SAHN-koh-fah] is an Akan word that means to “retrieve” to literally go back and get. It is immortalised in the Sacred Adinkra symbol system of Ghana, as a mythical bird which looks back as its feet face forward, carrying a precious egg.
Join young Sankofa as he asks his beloved family members why they look backward on his journey to find his own reasons to turn.
