About the Galleries

Welcome to the Sankofa Archives Galleries: a work in progress to which images are added periodically. The Galleries aim to offer images of African art and culture from all parts of the world, as well as to show and record images of blacks in European art history.

The Galleries encourage donations of photographs from community members. We ask only that you provide as much detail about the piece as possible, including its title, location, and date, as well as its creator if it is artwork. Full credit will be given to the individual, so please notify us regarding how you wish your name to appear in the credit line (e.g., John Smith, J. Smith, John S, JS, etc.).

To donate images, please email Please write “Image” in the subject line of the email (e.g., Image: “Mona Lisa” or Image: “Wish to Donate”).

If you wish to donate papers concerning African art history, black culture, history, and/or related interests to the Sankofa Archives, then please see our Call for Papers.         
Thank you.
