About this Exhibition and Event:

In honor of the United Nation's Decade of People of African Descent, SANKOFA features selected works, performing arts and dialogue that embodies the history and culture of the African Diaspora and fosters social and environmental justice through the transformative power of art.

Our Place Theatre will perform a scene from Robert Johnson's play Stop and Frisk, followed by a dialogue with actresses Valerie Lee and Karimah Williams, and civil rights activists Askia Touré, Yvette Modestin and Karlene Griffith Sekou.
