Sankofa Summit Tours

The objective of the Sankofa Summit is to give individuals an interactive learning experience about Black history in and around different cities around the U.S. Individuals will take a virtual tour, visiting several different locations. Each stop on the tour is a historic location, ripe with Black culture and history. Organizations are encouraged to take part in this unique experience where employees learn about the Black history within their local city/town. This experience can be adapted to any city or town.  

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. Research (Onyeador, Daumeyer, Rucker, Duker, Kraus, Richeson, 2020) also finds that “learning more about historical and structural racism has been shown to make white Americans more alert to discrimination and racial disparities.”

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

The Pink Elephant Workshop Series:
Consume Digest Dialogue (CDD)

This is a facilitated workshop discussion where employees are invited to consume piece of historical content (movie, video, TV show, podcast, article, social media post, etc.), digest what they have seen or heard and then discuss their interpretations, understanding and what they have learned with fellow employees.
