One of the foremost collections of African American history spanning the period of 1860 to the present, “Sankofa” takes audiences on a journey through

slavery, the era of King Cotton and days of Emancipation. It also tells the stories of Ida B. Wells, other famous African Americans, the Tuskegee Airman, Dr. King, and our 44th president. This exhibit includes more than 20 tables of historical artifacts, pictures, writings and other tangible items which are enhanced with a guided tour, question and answer session and dramatic presentation. This one-day presentation is open to all. Groups are welcome. Please contact if you have a group you would like to bring so we can adequately plan for your group’s arrival. This exhibit is sponsored by Salem College and offered free to the community. There will be a break in the exhibit from Noon until 1 p.m.
