A Journey Toward Racial Righteousness

The Sankofa Journey, coordinated by our denomination, is an intentional, cross-racial prayer journey that seeks to assist disciples of Christ on their move toward a righteous response to the social ills related to racism. This interactive experience explores historic sites of importance in the Civil Rights movement and sites of oppression and inequality for people of color, while seeking to move participants toward healing the wounds and racial divide caused by hundreds of years of racial injustice in the United States. The Sankofa Journey is a multiple day trip that takes you to various states in the United States.

Sankofa participants are matched with partners to journey together through this experience. We would like to pair you with another NewCom participant so please reach out to Steve Sims before you register with the ECC (see information below).
