The Sankofa Project of Florida partners with the Zora Neale Hurston Festival

The Sankofa Project of Florida partners with the Zora Neale Hurston Festival of the Arts and Humanities for their ZORA NEALE HURSTON FESTIVAL on January 27 – January 29.

The Sankofa Project of Florida is born out of a legislative initiative sponsored in 2015 by Sen. Geraldine Thompson of Orlando, Florida. It was funded in 2016, the Florida Department of State provided funds to enhance and promote Florida’s African-American culturally historic museums and festivals.

Florida boasts some of the most interesting and historically relevant museums in the country. These eye-opening exhilarating facilities consist of the home of a slain husband-and-wife civil rights activists, the birthplace of a world-renowned novelist and folklorist and even a hotel owned by one of Orlando’s first black doctors, where famous African-American performers such as Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Ray Charles and many others stayed and performed.

These are just a few of the many outstanding historical museums that can be found in Florida. In addition to these museums, Florida features African-American themed festivals that honor our music history, from the blues to hip-hop and R&B, as well as African dance and our excellent African-American culture.

The museums and festivals that are currently partnered with the Sankofa Project of Florida offer unique educational and cultural heritage facts on various aspects of Florida African-American individuals and events. The partners of the Sankofa Project network are:
