Bio

Angela Jennings established SANKOFA in 1995. Today, this museum is considered to be one of the foremost collections of African American history available today. As curator, Jennings has traveled throughout the world to amass a collection of art and memorabilia that rivals many traditional museums. The exhibit is a testament to the vast contributions that African Americans have made to this country and to the world.

SANKOFA takes audiences on a journey through slavery, the era of King Cotton, and the uplifting days of Emancipation. It also tells the stories of such notables as Ida B. Wells, the Negro Baseball League, the Tuskegee Airmen, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The Ghanaian term, SANKOFA, tells us to use the wisdom of the past to build the future. Angela Jennings and her Museum epitomizes the meaning of the term by educating, enlightening, and empowering young and old alike with living history.
