Join us for an evening of dance! Sankofa’s 25th Anniversary and performances by Alex Bernstein ’23, Isabel Carmona ’24, Caroline Morrissey ’25, Ethan Richmond ’24, Lucy Walker ’23, and Ashley Xu ’22.

Sankofa’s 25th anniversary celebrates the history, community, and legacy that this team has fostered. Sankofa was originally founded in 1997 by five Black women: Dahra Jackson ’00, Maxine Lyle ’00, Mya Fisher ’00, Melina Evans ’00, and Samantha Reed ’00. In the spirit of Sankofa, we will step back in it to commemorate our original reunion steps and the original starting point of step. We will also be joined by student choreographers, who will be demonstrating various forms of dance and highlighting the wonderful community of dancers that Williams has to offer.

This performance was supported in part by the Lecture Committee. Our productions are also sponsored by the Departments of Dance and Music, and The Fund for Afro-American Studies of Williams College with the Generous Support of the Lipp Family Fund for Performing Artists.
