Very soon you'll be visiting the Sankofa Children's Museum of African Cutures where African history comes to life in Baltimore. Feel free to take a virtual tour of the museum's concept on this website,then make the decision to help create Baltimore's and America's first and only children's museum truly focused on African history and cultures.
Our exhibits will bring to life a missing element in the lives of young people particularly African American children. We do not believe that African history begins with slavery or the Civil Rights Movement as it is currently perceived. Nor should African history be taught in American public schools only during Black History Month. Unfortunately this seems to be the norm.
Rather, we believe that African history and culture should be made available to people of all cultures and especially in African American communities, should be a vital part of everyday life, relevant and vitally important for the self esteem and self image of each young person. They should feel a sense of pride and feel connected to a land with a vast and rich culture.
We look forward to welcoming you next!
