The objective of the Sankofa Summit is to give individuals an interactive learning experience about Black history in and around New York City. Individuals will take a walking tour, visiting several different locations around the five boroughs. Each stop on the tour is a historic location, ripe with Black culture and history. 


Research (Galinsky, Ku, Wang, 2005; Galinsky, Ku, Wang, 2008) indicates that perspective-taking activities that allow a person to put themselves in the shoes of another person, will foster social bonds and will reduce stereotypes and prejudice. 

The Sankofa Summit is specifically designed for organizations, but can be utilized by anyone hoping to increase their knowledge and understanding of Black history. Accompanying each stop on the tour will be a history lesson regarding the significance of each location.
