Our Story
The Sankofa Literary Society was founded in August of 2007 by Ella D. Curry, the owner of EDC Creations, to give back to the literary community the things she has learned while building her vast literary network.

The Sankofa Literary Society consists of authors, librarians, 80 established bloggers, 42 nurses, 15 independent bookstores, 45 reviewing book clubs and has over 2,700 members online and offline in total, with 877 of those members coming from book clubs or established reading groups.

The Sankofa Literary Society is a literary organization which seeks to enrich the lives of African American people by providing information and inspiration through opportunities for education, fellowship, and entrepreneurship. We give thanks to all those who helped us get to where we are today by providing a platform to share our collective gifts.

Sankofa is an Akan word that means, “We must go back and reclaim our past so we can move forward so we understand why and how we came to be who we are today.”

The symbol is based on a mythical bird that flies forwards with its head turned backwards. This reflects the Akan belief that the past serves as a guide for planning the future, or the wisdom in learning from the past in building the future.
