The Sankofa Experience
The Sankofa experience combines readings, films, class lectures, conversations and culminates in a 60-hour bus pilgrimage, not unlike the historic Freedom Rides of the Civil Rights Movement. Focusing primarily on black/white relations, we explore the biblical, political, cultural, and psychological dimensions of the struggle for racial justice during the Civil Rights era and its contemporary implications. We also seek to provide experiences that lead to personal transformation regarding the difficult questions surrounding race and justice.
Undergraduate students have the option of participating in the Sankofa Experience as a two-credit class (AS-2540) during the Spring semester pending successful completion of an application and interview process. The program is facilitated as a joint venture of the Collaboratory for Urban and Intercultural Learning and University Ministries. This year's trip will take place Thursday, February 21st - Sunday, February 24th, 2013.
The Sankofa program is financially supported by University Ministries.
