Sankofa Math Workshop
Sankofa Math Workshop will be held at Martin Luther King High School
Time:  10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Sankofa Math offers a series of workshops directed at Black community adults - including parents, grandparents, teachers, community people -
then youth. It seeks to re-engage the adults in mathematical inquiry and skill building. The goal is to lift the burden from the students’ shoulder to put it squarely on the broader shoulders of parents, teachers, and community adults.

Sankofa Math also seeks to create a “safe space” for parents and community adults to go back and fetch (Sankofa) the math knowledge that they lost at the point of any personal disconnection/alienation with the subject. This means removing blame and replacing it with understanding and opportunity. It also means re-teaching the subject content.Equally as important is collaborating with the adult to replace years of negative associations (ego defense systems) to math with new ones. This should be done precisely at the point of their re-learning the content, wherever it may be on the math knowledge continuum- from addition to functions in calculus.

Sankofa Math works to heal the alienation at the personal, familial and cultural levels. It also works to inspire and empower families, schools, and the Black community to re-create a culture embracing mathematics - knowledge, skill, application, and theory. The goal is to wrap the student in this new culture of mathematics. To stimulate a new discussion between adults and students full of stories of the adults healing their own disconnects with math and their renewed excitement of new discovery.
