Inspired by acclaimed chef Eric Adjepong's own childhood, Sankofa is the powerful story of a young boy's culinary journey 400 years into the past to reconnect with his African roots and find his own place in America.

What if home was a place you've never been? For Kofi, a first-generation Ghanaian American boy, home is a country called Ghana. But it's a place he's never been. When tasked to bring a dish that best represents his family's culture to school for a potluck lunch, Kofi is torn. With the help of his Nanabarima (grandfather), Kofi learns the hardship and resilience his family has endured--and how food has always been an integral part their story and culture. Sankofa is a reminder that food can transport you to a place called home--even if you've never been.
