fka. Allied Media Conference Cohort
Team Sankofa started off as a cohort of Black UU and UU adjacent folks interested in social justice work that attended the Allied Media Conference in Detroit this year. Their role, mission, and vision has only grown and expanded since the conference. In collaboration with the BLUU Community Organizer, they are charged with the task of setting the focus, tone, and agenda for the Fall/Winter #BLUUMicro30 project, as well as being the living example of collaborative/collective work and effort for a signature BLUU campaign.
MEET THE TEAM
Sankofa literally means "it is not taboo to go back and fetch what you forgot." After the term made its way to the United States, African-American scholars commonly applied the term to mean “remembering our past, to protect our future."
