African Burial Ground National Monument Sankofa Mug

Item#: 375244


Available Options:




''Se wo were fi na wosankofa a yenkyi.''

This West African proverb often associated with the sankofa symbol translates to ''It is not wrong to go back for that which you have forgotten,'' meaning that we must reflect on the past to build a successful future.

Meditate on these wise words as you sip your morning beverage and prepare for the day ahead with this ceramic mug. The striking Adinkra symbol graces the front of the mug, clearly showing the stylized heart-like shape that was found on one of the coffins discovered at African Burial Grounds National Monument in New York during excavation in 1991. The reverse features a smaller version of the symbol with the collquial translation ''Return and get it'' as well as a short history of the importance of Adinkra symbols at the monument. Soothe your soul with the wise words on this mug each morning as you reflect on the day ahead.
