Sankofa: The Roots of the African American Experience
An interdisciplinary course inspired by Haile Gerima’s compelling motion picture, Sankofa. The word “Sankofa” means “it is not taboo to go back and reclaim what what has been lost”. This course will build upon this concept of “returning to the source” in order to understand the present state of the African Diaspora. Emphasis will be placed on the historical, and psychocultural understanding of people of African descent throughout the Diaspora.
