Sankofa Wellness for Black History Month

41 minutes

Happy Black History Month!  The Espresso Talk Today Team is focusing this wellness show on an African (Akan) theme from Ghana called Sankofa. Robin will discuss the principle of Sankofa more in this podcast show but it basically expresses the importance of learning from past knowledge (from the ancestors) and using this knowledge to create a better future. This special Sankofa show features a short story by the eminent poet and playwright, Paul Laurence Dunbar. The story is called "The Scapegoat" and it is one of the first stories in the protest literature genre. Storytelling at its finest! So get comfortable and enjoy this experience in Black history!
