Sankofa African-American Museum on Wheels

Driving through Richmond area of North Carolina this week is the Sankofa African American Museum of Wheels - operated for 20 years (yes, 20 years!) by Angela Jennings. In this photo from the Richmond County Daily Journal newspaper, she is sharing a quilt illustrating the slave-trade triangle of Africa, the Caribbean, and America. Apparently, Ms. Jennings started what would become the museum to teach her nephew about Black History. I'd love to meet her and visit the museum! Have you stepped into this museum on wheels? Do Tell!
