What would it be like to go on the journey of a lifetime... A trip to Egypt?

12-year old author, Jahbari Akua tells his fascinating story of first learning about this magnificent ancient African civilization, then the incredible 11-day odyssey in his book Sankofa Kemet: My First Trip to the Motherland.

Children and families will experience the wonderful journey through Jahbari's eyes as he takes them to each of the sites and monuments he saw.  Join Jahbari as he sails the Nile, stands at the foot of the Great Pyramid, stands face-to-face with the Horemakhet (Sphinx), and walks between the colossal pillars of the sacred temples.

This book also contains an epilogue detailing how this journey was both the culmination and continuation of a family tradition.  Lastly, the book contains an Activity Guide full of classroom activities and home activities aimed at increasing reading comprehension, vocabulary development, and cultural awareness.

"Tell Negro parents that they must teach their children Negro history, Negro pride and self-respect in their homes to counteract the elementary and high school education they get that holds up the superiority of the white race."
