The concept of Sankofa Wisdom, LLC was conceived over coffee and conversation in a dining room in Michigan the summer of 2007 by Mary Gilliam and Kristine Burns. Originally our company sold unique items for Kwanzaa celebrations and Black History month. Since our inception, other companies have approached us to develop promotional materials for them. Thus the beginning of Sankofa Graphics. We have also encountered people who have special gifts and talents. Besa Saka Marketplace is a place for them to share those with you. The company took the name Sankofa Wisdom in honor of the ancient mythical Sankofa Bird, that looks to the past while moving forward to the future. The name 'Sankofa' learn from the past so that you use that knowledge in the future. This is the foundation of Sankofa Wisdom.
