The Sankofa symbol has been adopted as an important symbol in the African Diaspora to represent the need to reflect on the past to build a successful future. It is one of the most widely dispersed adinkra symbols, appearing in modern jewelry, tattoos, and clothing.
In Trinidad and Tobago, August 1st is observed and celebrated as Emancipation Day, a time of keen focus into the history and development of African heritage in our society.
