African Bermuda Dispersion Cultural Bus Tour

January 20, 2020 | 1 Comment

Bermuda minibus group tour company Titan Express, in partnership with the Department of Community and Cultural Affairs, is getting set to present ‘The African Bermuda Dispersion Cultural Bus Tour’ every Saturday in February and March.

The tour departs at 10.00am from outside the Visitor Service Center in Hamilton and will visit sites including Cobbs Hills Methodist Church, the Enslaved Graveyard at the Rubber Tree, and the Sarah “Sally” Bassett sculpture before returning at 12.00pm.

A spokesperson said, “We call our tours Sankofa journeys; Sankofa is an African word and it means to go back and fetch it. The name is also based on a proverb that ‘it is not wrong to go back for that which you have forgotten.’

“There is the symbol of a Sankofa bird which has it head looking backward and the body positioned forward, with an egg in its mouth, and within the African Diaspora context this represents the need to reflect on the past to build a successful future.

“We can’t change the past, but we can learn from it and it is our responsibility to make the future better, not just for ourselves, but for the younger generations, and those yet born. Come and join in on a Sankofa journey and learn stories of the enslaved ancestors in Bermuda.”

Tickets cost $15 and are available online. For more information, email info@titantoursbermuda.com.
