Join SANKOFA Film Screening Feb. 20, 22

The Office of Engagement is partnering with and Wichita State’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion during Black History Month for the SANKOFA Film Screening at 5 p.m. Feb. 20 at Hubbard Hall and a panel discussion at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 21 via Facebook Live.
The events will include the following:
  • SANKOFA Film Screening: Sankofa has been described as unashamedly Afrocentric and proud…artistic, challenging and essential and an unrelenting but never exploitative portrayal of the great slave diaspora of the 18th and 19th centuries by Letterboxd. This is a free screening of the recently restored and highly lauded and moving film, originally released in 1993. There will also be a special performance by local creative Blk Sol before the screening. Learn more about Sankofa.
  • Panel discussion: Sankofa Film and Black Emancipation: After the film screening, join a conversation on Facebook Live where guests will unpack the themes in the 1993 film Sankofa. The conversation will address Black emancipation then and in the 21st Century.
All participants must register to attend. For more information, contact the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at 316-978-3034 or visit the website.
