Experience Sankofa Project is an innovative art exhibit that combines history, live performance art, and sacred altars into an interactive timeline of African and American history. It is a physical and sensory journey from our African greatness to Present-day Oakland and brings history to life.
This Virtual Offering is a fundraiser to help build a permanent home for the Experience Sankofa Project which was severely damaged in the recent floods that impacted most of California. This is the chance for you to see the virtual museum and learn more about the work we do to transform lives. We know that our world is abundant, resources are plentiful, and we trust that those who are able and willing to support this movement will do so.

ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE SANKOFA PROJECT -
What began in 2008 as a small altar of African history has grown to a 3000 sq foot immersive experience that bring history to life- literally. Spearitwurx curated powerful and provocative period-specific “living installations” using lights, sounds, smells, and actors that evoke visceral emotions as an ode to African peoples’ greatness, oppression, resistance, and aspirations. Embedded in ESP are facilitated conversations about the impacts of capitalism, slavery, migration, solidarity and radical imagination as a necessary tool for racial healing.
Celebrate Black History Month year-round! ESP is an innovative way to build human connection while highlighting the beauty and resiliency of Black people - from the African Continent to present-day Oakland.
