MY SANKOFA
(Former Title: Return of the African-American)
By
Curtis "Kojo" Morrow aka “Kojo-)
Achampong” And yes,Dr. Glover I remember you & Medasaa-Paa-)
My journey to Africa began with "I can't."
I mean, I got so damned tired of people telling me what
I "can't" do, because I am black...
Well, so far, I've done everything they told me I couldn't do.
This book is just another...
INTRODUCTION
I went to Africa alone and knew no one there before arriving. A
fellow New Yorker had told me there were Black Americans
living in Africa. Inquiries made among my fellow artist
friends of the 20th Century Art Creators luckily produced the
name and address of a Black artist living and working in Accra,
Ghana. His name was Tom Feelings and I was able to correspond
with him.
A Ghanaian friend, living in the same building I lived
in, assured me that Ghana was the place to go and gave me a
book to read, I Speak of Freedom by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. This
was about nine months before I made my escape to the
motherland, during which time I cleaned myself up by
following the moral precepts of The Nation of Islam and stopped
drinking, smoking, and hanging out with negative people.
I was working at the post office as a custodial laborer
(porter) at night. This was considered a good job for someone
with a 9th grade education, like myself. I generally hustled my
art work during the day. Somehow I managed to save $1000 of
which $834 went for my ticket. I planned to work a year at
the post office, take my three week's vacation, and go to Africa
to see just how long I could remain there. I even made out a
letter of resignation and left it with a friend before leaving. I
intended to either stay a year creating and accumulating
paintings before returning to the States or remain there for
the rest of my life. THE REST IS HISTORY. History of an early pioneer:
