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.

My Story...

My inspiration to create an athleisure apparel brand that is African inspired, consciously forward, and that promotes unity. Stems from my appreciation of fitness, the importance of living a health conscious lifestyle, and intertwining community activism within the brand. My inspiration is also rooted in my desire to bring an athleisure apparel line to athletes/non-athletes that is a reflection of US, that inspires US, and ultimately unites US.

Let’s Build! Let’s Inspire! Let’s Unite!


Pioneering in the world of design, we aim to bring innovation and authenticity, globally! Our goal is unification through a variety of sportswear, playwear, and casual wear. With open arms, we are embracing the changing world, seeking to diversify sports fashion by way of social and environmental awareness. Therefore, we consciously strive to be sustainable and eco-friendly.


To evoke Authenticity, Strength, Innovation, Elevation, and Unity amongst all athletes/non-athletes.
