Product Description

This badge is the logo of the African Holocaust Foundation which incorporates the Slavery Remembrance Sankofa nesting inside its homeland, Africa. This badge brings together two powerful symbols to make one stunning statement piece.

Sankofa is a word from the Ghanaian Twi language meaning “Go back and get it”  (san – to return; ko – to go; fa – to fetch, to seek and take)

The Sankofa is linked to the African proverb Se wo were fi na wosankofa a yenkyi,”  which translates as: “It is not wrong to go back for that which you have forgotten.”

Sankofa is usually depicted by one of two symbols: a bird with its head turned backwards taking an egg off its back, or as a stylised heart shape.

The Slavery Remembrance Sankofa encompasses both symbols as well as other symbols including the Garvery Black Star and fifteen circles running down the neck of the bird symbolising the 15+ million people enslaved during this period. At the bottom of the remembrance Sankofa is the proverb Se wo were fi na wosankofa a yenkyi.

Money raised from the sale of the badge allow us to remain independent and fund other projects aimed at the African diaspora.

All badges come with a set of rules the wearers are encouraged to follow.
