Born as an African American, the Curator Rufus Tiefing Stevenson has travelled, lived and worked on different places throughout the Africa Continent. He has dream of how to bring the African culture, community love and food to his people in the diaspora. For him to change the mindset of his people in America and around the world, the Curator African Evangelist Rufus Tiefing Stevenson has created “Sankofa Tour”. This tour allows him to bring the spirit of Africa to African America folks and other Africa descents living in the Diaspora. Organized once every year since 2009, it provides the opportunity for people in the diaspora to go back and reclaim their past. During these tours participants have different emotion of joy and sadness. Others have gone back many times to re-experience all the advantages the continent can offer. The best part of the Tour is the welcoming ceremonies, feeling of belonging among families and communities of people that have the same rhythm and look alike; and exotic foods that the continent offer.
2014 the Sankofa Tour went to Ethiopia, Mali and Zimbabwe
