On Friday November 11, 2011 at approximately 8:30 pm, Brother Sankofa, Kofi Aboagye Akrofi Sankofa, officially and traditionally accepted the responsibility to become the third member of the MACPRI Traditional Council based in Toronto, Canada. While Brother Sankofa's work with MACPRI will not change his title has; from Associate Chief he has been enstooled as MACPRI Chief Advisor (Akwamuhene in the Akan language). The position of Chief assistant/advisor in a traditional council usually goes to an old man - an Elder, but Sankofa's commitment to our community, particularly in the planning of the recent Oware Tournament at the Africentric Alternative School and his tireless work generally, has earned him a title befitting of an ancient African Warrior returned.
MACPRI is the Chief Stills photographer of Akwantu: The Journey, a documentary film on the legendary Maroons of Jamaica by Roy T. Anderson. For more information about MACPRI and our projects visit: www.macpri.com, www.owarecanada.com and www.wix.com/macpri/african-art.
