WHO ARE WE
Sankofa Athletics, LLC was founded in 2019 in Los Angeles, CA. We are a brand that stands in the name of unity, leadership, and mastery. The term “Sankofa” originates from the Akan people of Ghana and the logo is an interpretation of an Adinkra symbol known as Sankofa.
Sankofa’s distinctive logo is designed as a backward facing bird signifying the importance of looking to the past and the centering egg carries the meaning useful knowledge. Altogether, looking to the past in order to retrieve useful knowledge is our driving force for carving a better future and honoring the wondrous legacy of our predecessor.
