Sankofa is an Adinkra symbol that means “Going back and getting what was left behind” like our knowledge, family values and everything that was erased from our history. It is this wisdom in learning from the past which ensures a strong future.
Sankofa Cultural Market has partnered with ReBirth MB Event Park/Rev Dr Zachary Hudson to host future events. This will be the 1st entrepreneurial event in 2022.
The ReBirth Baptist Church continues in its efforts to empower the Tampa Bay Community. For nearly thirty years they have strived to “Lead God’s People into Spiritual Truth” through worship, study, and fellowship. Also, by becoming one of the first church-based Charter Schools to open in Tampa and by opening a Daycare to educate our young children to motivate them and share their gifts and their talents with everyone they have contact with. “In this challenging time, they are embracing our culture even more by promoting Black Entrepreneurship as we celebrate Black History month. Furthermore, we look forward to continuously evoking a sense of pride, industry, and self-esteem among our people,” stated Rev Dr Zachary Hudson.
Queens Vision African Apparel as well as 2 other Black Owned Businesses; Yole the Brand and Faye’s Essentials will be relocating their business to their Business Campus March 2022” We pray for God’s blessings on these efforts. We are so excited, and the Vendors are ready. We need the community to support this as an outdoor family event for all. Face Mask optional.
