‘Returning to the Roots: Going Green’
February 17-21, 2009
Please join the African Burial Ground National Monument in celebrating Black History Month. The workshops and programs throughout the celebration are centered around the theme of "Returning to the Roots: Going Green." Guided by the spirit of Sankofa, a West African Akan concept and symbol that means "learn from the past to prepare for the future," the theme represents the African Burial Ground’s connection to its African roots and the global movement of people committed to sustaining the world’s natural environment.
