We’ve returned from a very grounding and uplifting weekend that focused on the enslavement of African people. The full programme is to make sure that we never forget… and like Sankofa we use the experience to propel us forward. Here’s an account of the weekend.
Your comments below the images are important to us.
Rise and shine
Then to the Transatlantic Slavery Museum. Before we left London the young men decided what questions they need to be able to answer on this very important aspect of history. Their questions became the worksheet for the weekend.

The information affects us in different ways.
Following the lecture we met Laurence, a local historian with a specialism in enslavement of African’s in Liverpool. He took us on a tour of the Liverpool City Center. He explained that… We built this place!
After our run and training in the morning we went to the River Mersey for a visualisation exercise. The images are of the young men making their own personal connections to their history.
In conversation with our Ancestors – in conversation with our Self.
After pouring libation we were ready for the rest of the day. We had breakfast and made our way back to London. Our next session at ORIGIN on Wednesday is called Special Truth, which is all about feed back from the weekend.
