With the largest collection of African-American and diasporic children's literature in D.C., our books explore a broad array of subjects, from the whimsical to more difficult such as immigration, loss of a loved one and homelessness -- while still embracing the joys of counting cupcakes!

Sankofa is dedicated to offering a space where the greatness of diverse voices can be celebrated, and where children of color can see themselves, their communities and their unique situations represented in literature.

Stay tuned to for news of featured children's book authors for during the month of December.
