Sending beautiful Sankofa wishes to those celebrating Black History Month in the United Kingdom this month!! Peace and blessings always.

Celebrating Black History in the United Kingdom

Sankofa is the Adinkra symbol that reminds us to Return and Get what has been left behind.

October is the month  designated to celebrate the rich history of people of African descent in The United Kingdom.  At Kiarablu we celebrate this rich history all year long.   I would like to offer a few of our afrocentric designs.   These are created to offer our fantastic customers the opportunity to express their love and  respect for the beautiful continent of AFRICA!   Enjoy and please let us know your favorites !

A legacy of strength and perseverance has been passed down for many generations! What will this generation contribute to the community. Wawa Aba is the Adinkra symbol which represents strength!

Adinkra symbol Sankofa - Return & Get what you left behind

October is Black History Month in the United Kingdom!   I just learned last year that our UK Brothers and Sisters do not celebrate their season of Sankofa during the same month as we do here in the United States.   This news is VERY exciting to me because I have “discovered” another area to research in Black History ( as if I don’t have a WIDE field here in the US!)

Learning about Black History UK has been such a beautiful discovory……many facts I did not know about. (be sure to follow our twitter timeline for more @kiarablu)  The video I have included below is a wonderful interview with Mia Morris.  She is the founder of Black-History-Month.co.uk – a web site devoted to Black History in the United Kingdom.   This fantastic site is a treasure trove of historical information from past and modern times.   Be sure to hop over for a visit.    

If you are celebrating the month of October as Black History month PLEASE leave us a note about your event, family time, teaching or artistic expressions.   Links are VERY welcome so that I can learn MORE!! 

Sending beautiful Sankofa wishes to all the beautiful
