Sankofa: Stories of Power, Hope, and Joy

This collection of over 100 inspirational Africentric stories of power, hope, and joy is designed to resonate with readers of all races. The stories cover a range of topics including biblical events, African history, family, education, nature, and profiles of famous African Americans like Nelson Mandela, Harriet Tubman, George Washington Carver, and Paul Robeson. For example, Harriet Tubman’s story highlights her fight against slavery and perilous journeys to the South in the 1840s while living free in Pennsylvania. George Washington Carver’s story illustrates his dedication to teaching students, as demonstrated when he declined offers of $100,000 from both Thomas Edison and the Ford Motor Company in 1905. Each story promotes family values, contains religious themes, and transcends racial boundaries.
