This day honors the millions of African men, women and children who perished during the Middle Passage. Join The Sankofa Projects as they educate and celebrate the richness and diversity of the African diaspora and bring awareness to this tragic chapter in American and global history. The program includes African drumming, songs, dance, poetry, historical presentations and a traditional African libation at noon.
Sankofa's International Day of Remembrance Ceremony is presented in partnership with the Fort Monroe Authority, Fort Monroe National Monument, and the Casemate Museum.
