Who We Are
Sankofa Bookstore is one of the very few Afrocentric Bookstores in all of Canada and its main purpose is to bring forward the missing links, which among many others are the stories of the Nubians, Kemets, Moors and Afrikans who are all part of the Global Kush Empire.
Mostly, we are told just one part of our story and Sankofa Bookstore offers the other part to allow for a more complete picture.
Sankofa is a Twi word that translates in English to “Go Back and Bring It” which means 'One Must Return to the Past in order to move forward' … So we have to know where we are coming from and through this journey we shall know balance.
Behind The Company
Dedicating her life to spreading conscious knowledge to emancipate the minds and bodies of the people of Kush through music, finding Sankofa Bookstore was nothing but an alignment that fit both pieces perfectly together for a magnificent creation.
As an orator of our story, Confidence Survival has presented and represented Sankofa Bookstore in many ways than one and she is a pure confirmation of our ancestral connection and DNA activation. We know that our high people, culture and wisdom are all still here with us through the voice and vessel of Confidence Survival.
What Matters To Us
The Mission of Sankofa Bookstore is to present the documented evidence of the people of Kush whose voices the mainstream information highway has successfully downplayed.
The Book Store will continue to be an Alternate source that provides information that’s missing so as to cross reference the present mainstream narrative when it comes up to the people of Kush and we envision Sankofa Bookstore soon becoming The #1 Global source of knowledge and inspiration for every Kush and their journey.
What We Do
We are eager to provide our nation with whatever information and guidance they need to build or attain and live a sustainable Kush life.
How We Do It
As well as the rest of our services, for over 14 years, Sankofa Bookstore has been an ONSITE BOOKSTORE located at 430 Rideau Street, Downtown Ottawa, ON. K1N 5Z1 Canada.
In 2017, we incorporated an important sector in the company which is the MOBILE BOOKSTORE that is fully event oriented (ranging nightclubs, day events & festivals) that allows us to bridge the gap by bringing the books to the different neighbourhoods in the community who are not readily able to travel downtown and due to that, are not easily exposed to the knowledge that we carry. The recent global situation has forced our hands to suspend this sector of the company until further notice.
We are also an ONLINE BOOKSTORE offering full services that make it easy for you to purchase any books you want and get them delivered them right to your doorstep in the case of a physical copy and E-books you can access from anywhere in the world.
THE LECTURES SECTOR of the company has now been expanded online in the form of text fully accessible here on our website blog and in the form of videos available on our website as well and on our YouTube Channel 'SankofaTalks'.
THE MOVIE NIGHTS have been upgraded and improved into premium movie content on a subscription basis available to members only.
THE BOOK RENTALS sector will be suspended until further notice as well.
THE CONSULTING SECTOR
will be available fully online coming April 2021.
THE BOOK READING, HAIR CARE, DANCE WORKOUT & NUTRITION Programs
Have also expanded fully to online as;
Remold-I-Mind', 'Revitalize-I-Cord', 'Reconnect-I-Source' & 'Rejuvenate-I-Goody' respectively and will be available on a membership basis coming April 2021 as well.
