Sankofa Caravan to the Ancestors honors late activists

On Saturday, Oct. 19, the National Black United Front (NBUF) convened the 16th annual Sankofa Caravan to the Ancestors on the shores of Galveston, Texas, where enslaved Africans were once brought to the U.S. This year’s Sankofa Caravan honored longtime New York City activists and NBUF founders Baba Seydou N’Joya and Baba Jitu Weusi and former Black Panther Sister Ayanna Ade, all of whom passed this year.
