Sankofa 2008: Look back. Walk forward.

The Amani family is proud to announce that the Sankofa Fashion Narrative will come to the United States this fall!

“Sankofa: Look Back, Walk Forward” will tour the United States in October 2008. The tour will kick off in Orlando, Florida on Oct 4th. Other stops will include Charlotte, NC on Oct. 10th and Washington D.C. on Oct 17th. We invite you to join us in one of these cities to celebrate with the Amani family and support the cause of God’s peace in the world.

“Sankofa: Look Back, Walk Forward” is a high-end fashion narrative produced by the women of Amani ya Juu.

Through brilliant costumes, choreography, lighting and music women from seven countries – Burundi, Congo, Eritrea, Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan and Uganda – use the fashion runway as their stage to depict courageous journeys from war-torn homes to their new life of wholeness and reconciliation at Amani ya Juu.

The women of Amani are thrilled to bring their story to the US through Sankofa. Please consider supporting them by Donating to a few specific needs for the team traveling from Nairobi.

If you live in one of our five host cities, we also invite you to Contact us if you are interested in helping with local preparations for Amani's Sankofa presentation in your area.
