Sankofa: Tell the Stories Exhibition

From: 10:00 AM to 05:00 PM, June 13, 2024 | The Kansas African American Museum

The Kansas African American Museum and Harvester Arts are proud to announce Sankofa: Tell the Story, a community project including a large temporary mural at TKAAM's new location, 201 N Main, and a museum exhibition in TKAAM's current space at 601 N Water St. This community focused project is designed to bridge the past, present, and the future of the The Kansas African American Museum in Wichita, KS.

TKAAM and Harvester Arts invites visitors to the mural and exhibition to engage with in Sankofa by viewing the mural and images of the past included in the exhibition and their personal story Sankofa is an expression of the Twi language of Ghana who literal translation means, "to go back and get it". The phrase evokes the past as a teaching tool: in order to find our way forward, we must look to our past to inform the future.
