3. “The African Bermuda Dispersion Cultural bus and virtual tours are available for groups on request and for more information email info@titantoursbermuda.com or call 234-1096.

“We call our offerings, “Sankofa Journeys, and Sankofa is an African Akan proverb and it means to go back and fetch it, and 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.”
