As part of Black History Month, Sankofa Café, celebrating its 25th year of serving up books, knowledge, speakers and just about anything you can get in a Café, served up another incredible event: Dr. Julius Garvey LIVE, Talk & Book Signing.
Dr. Garvey discussed his new book: The Philosophy & Opinions of Marcus Garvey, and he also answered questions from the audience who joined the highly anticipated event. Many stood for hours to hear the son of The Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey, founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association, (UNIA) to achieve Black Nationalism through the celebration of African history and culture. Garvey was also a leader of Pan-Africanism, a movement to unite all Black people.
The event was organized by Woodson, Banneker, Jackson Bey Division 330 – UNIA-ACL, RC2020 and the African Diaspora Ancestral Commemoration Insitute, (ADACI). The event also featured the following leaders and speakers: Iya Motilewa, Nkechi Taifa, Aza Zhenga and Baba Mosi Matsimeta.
Sankofa Video Books & Café is located at 2714 Georgia Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20001. Join their mailing list to stay updated on future events aimed at empowering the Black community and all those who wish to participate in its Black empowerment and culture movement.
