Behind The Release

The Sankofa Tee; a garment deeply rooted in the rich tapestry of African heritage and wisdom. As we journey through life, it's imperative that we take moments to pause, reflect, and honor the lessons of the past that shape our present and illuminate our path forward.

The inspiration behind the Sankofa Tee runs deep within me, drawing from the invaluable teachings instilled by my parents from a young age. They would teach me that we must honor our roots and plant more seeds. They gifted me with more than just stories; they imparted a profound sense of reverence for our ancestral roots and the timeless wisdom encapsulated within them. In their words, they echoed the sentiment of Sankofa: "Go back and get it." This ethos reminds us that our history is not confined to the chapters of oppression but encompasses a legacy of resilience, empowerment, and triumph.

Assata Shakur's powerful words resonate profoundly with me: "No one is going to give you the education you need to overthrow them." It's a call to action, a reminder that the journey to self-discovery and liberation begins with self-education and reclaiming our true narrative. The Sankofa Tee embodies this by teaching us that it's more than just a piece of clothing; it's a vessel for reclaiming our narratives, celebrating our heritage, and paving the way for a brighter future.

Sankofa beckons us to look back, not with regret or nostalgia, but with intention and reverence. It encourages us to glean wisdom from our ancestors, to honor their sacrifices, and to draw strength from their resilience. By embracing the teachings of the past, we equip ourselves with the tools to navigate the complexities of the present and forge a path towards a future rooted in authenticity and empowerment.

But the significance of the Sankofa Tee extends far beyond my personal journey—it's a collective celebration of our shared heritage, a love letter to the generations that paved the way for our existence. It's a testament to the enduring spirit of community, resilience, and solidarity that unites us all.

As we embark on this journey together, let us wear the Sankofa Tee not just as a symbol of pride but as a reminder of the infinite wisdom and resilience that resides within us all. Let us honor our roots, embrace our stories, and sow the seeds of empowerment for generations to come.

With gratitude and solidarity,

Trinity xx
