Black History Matters

Product Description

Our popular Slavery Remembrance badge has been specially redesigned  for Black History Month to incorporate the colours of black/African unity.

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 commemorative badge help in allowing us to remain independent and fund other projects aimed at the Afro-Caribbean diaspora.

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