Our brand produces athleisure wear backed with a purposeful meaning, and we support non-profit organizations that are doing the work in the community. We want to fill your closet with pieces that are comfortable, unique, and that also make a positive impact on the lives of others. We will donate 10% of our profit from each purchased Sankofa Pink Set to a non-profit of our choosing.

Center For Black Women's Wellness Story
Active Goals for our Breast and Cervical Health Program (BCCP): Once a month, we host Mammogram Mondays when a mammogram mobile unit from Northside Hospital comes down to the Dunbar Center to hold mammogram appointments. Patients must register beforehand and can do so by contacting us directly to schedule their appointment. The mobile unit is currently scheduled to come once a month as of now. However, we are working towards inviting Northside Hospital to come to the Dunbar Center twice per month so more patients can be seen. As of now, our next Mammogram Mondays are on September 12 th and October 31 st .
CBWW is here to help you take charge of your health by providing affordable healthcare and health programs to support your health journey.Our healthcare services are offered by paid staff, volunteer healthcare professionals, and partner agencies. We offer women’s healthcare (GYN), primary care, and mental health services. We provide care to those without health insurance on a sliding fee scale. For more information on eligibility click here.

All persons interested must attend an information session.
