Ya Sankofa!

By: Torrance R. Harvey M.S. ED.

About the Book

Sometimes I must move slowly like a cat...

Sometimes I must move with dispatch.

There are times I must be silent, unheard.

Just like the morning spring sun shining over the harmonious tweeting birds.

Then, there is that one moment in time I must ROAR loudly

For everyone to hear and fear everywhere.

Bringing their hearts and minds to understand ONE THING.

I AM the TRUE Lion and the King!

Ya Sankofa! is a literary journey of reflection. It is an artistic expression of cultural awareness in a contemporary sense from a historical lens in the form of a series of poems.
