Sankofa Impact is partnering with the University of Washington’s Honors Program to provide a month-long immersive Pilgrimage to the South June 16th through July 16th! Beginning in Houston, TX and traveling through 9 Southern states to reach Washington DC, this journey will explore the concept of sankofa as the group visits key places in the Black-American freedom struggle and spends time with foot soldiers who lived history, as well as, movement leaders making history today.

Honors- American South: Foundations of Black Culture, Social Movements, and Collective Liberation will explore over 400 years of history including the eras of enslavement, racial terrorism, civil rights, mass incarceration, and abolition activism. Participants will visit spaces that center Black joy, resistance, and culture, engaging along the way in the practice of leadership and growth toward everyday activism.
