In Ghanaian folklore there is an Adinkra symbol that displays a bird with its head turned backwards taking an egg off its back. The symbol is called “Sankofa,” which means “embrace your roots.” On Thursday, that is exactly what MPAGErs plan to do.
From the daunting Cape Coast Castle where millions of slaves bid farewell to their home, to the bustling streets of Accra, and the Songhai Centre, one of Africa’s largest sustainable communities, Spelhouse students will be immersing their selves into the African culture. There will be laughter, conversations, challenges, and knowledge at every step of the journey.
This blog is so you guys can cross the Atlantic and take this epic adventure with us. Are you ready?
