For more than three decades, she has relentlessly and fruitfully engaged her energy and efforts to keep alive, and pass-on the African history and culture, through the catalyst of Sankofa Kuumba Cultural Arts Consortium, Inc. Her work has resulted in the successful performances, education and presentations that have expanded the world view and information available to families, children and communities.In the African Tradition, the celebration of our elders is both a privilege and a blessing.
