SANKOFA A Culinary Story of Resilience and Belonging

by | Read by Eric Adjepong

Children Ages 4-6 • 13 mins. • Unabridged • © 2023

Author and chef Eric Adjepong brings his personal experience to his narration of his picture book. As a first-generation Ghanaian American, Kofi is embarrassed to bring a familial dish to his class's annual cultural potluck. What he eats at home is so different from his classmates' dishes. With guidance from his nanabarima (grandfather) Kofi learns the stories behind his own culturally significant foods. Adjepong has a deep voice and keeps his words clipped. His downward inflections make the ends of sentences somewhat hard to hear. Still, having the author narrate ensures that listeners hear the story as the author intends it to sound, including the correct pronunciation of names and words in African languages.
