We are excited to announce our 10th Annual Black Health and Healing Summit, titled SANKOFA: the wisdom of learning from the past to build for the future!

The Summit will occur over three days, June 1 – 3, 2017, and bring participants a rich experience of inspiration, spirit, culture and creativity. Offerings include a special talk by our Rafiki village member Dr. Joy DeGruy, titled “What Healing Looks Like,” a two-day series, in which she shares from her deep knowledge and experience of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome and paths for healing Black/African American communities.

Other highlights include: Community Drumming with Dr. Sal Nunez; performances by WolfHawkJaguar and the Prosperity Movement; a panel of Bay Area experts on the State of Black San Francisco, addressing health disparities, followed by more in-depth workshops that examine the root causes of health inequalities; a panel of Rafiki’s experts on Community Complementary Medicine and working with the African American community; nutrition demonstrations on Healthy Eating; and wonderful samplings of healthy, soulful nutrition, as well as an opportunity to shop with African American vendors and visit tables of community organizations.
