dc.description.abstractSankofa is a symbolic, Ghanaian expression represented by a bird whose head turns back looking towards the past. The Sankofa African Dance and Drum Ensemble retrieves the cultural essences of the past and brings them into the present.The ensemble presents dance and theater works expressing the dynamic presence of African culture in America. Some of the presentations are replicas of traditional African prototypes; and some are re-creations, employing contemporary themes and movement motifs. The members of the African Dance and Drum Ensemble of The College at Brockport represent the rich cultural heritage of Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, the Americas, and Africa that exists within our university community. Clyde Alafiju Morgan has been the artistic director since 1985. Music director Khalid Abdul N'Fally Saleem joined the ensemble in 1994.
