FINDING OUR ROOTS -  YEAR OF RETURN: OUR SANKOFA
A dialogue designed to stimulate a conversation about what ‘Connecting to Africa’ means for African Nova Scotians to look inward and to look outward as we build a better pathway for the future.

To mark the 400-year anniversary of the first enslaved Africans arriving in North America the call is to go back to your roots in 2019. 
Year of Return, Ghana 2019, is a project campaign targeting those living outside of Africa whose ancestors were once enslaved.
