Sankofa’s culturally significant graduation ceremony

There was no “Pomp and Circumstance.” The Sankofa International Academy graduates and their parents marched to the beat of the African Drums. Sankofa used the Fort Greene Stuyvesant Heights Neighborhood Senior Center, located at 966 Fulton St. in Brooklyn as the venue for their graduation/promotion ceremony on June 14 and thereby maintained the cultural and community essence of their educational program.
