We are excited to celebrate the 2nd annual community engagement event happening on February 29, 2020 to acknowledge and celebrate Black History Month. SANKOFA DAYS @ The BAY will feature a wonderful blend of events and activities focused on climate change, the environment and environmental justice, and sustainability that will appeal to children, millennials, seniors, and everyone in-between!
SANKOFA DAYS @ The BAY will explore environmental justice, the environmental movement, and will celebrate notable African American heroes and leaders in the environmental space. Aquarium of the Bay is partnering with the Northern California Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Foundation (Norcal MLK Foundation) and The San Francisco Chapter of The Links, Inc., to ensure that the events are engaging, educational, inclusive, and celebratory of the richness of the African Diaspora.
Aquarium of the Bay, located at PIER 39 in San Francisco, is the perfect location to celebrate Black History Month and its history and relevance in the environmental movement. And the Sankofa symbol and meaning is likewise apropos: “Know your past to understand your future.” The protection and sustainability of our environment is critical, and we can learn from past challenges to help forge a better and stronger environment for tomorrow.
