About the museum

Sankofa is a word in the Akan Twi & Fante languages of Ghana that translates to “retrieve” (literally “go back and get”).

We are making the museum come to life and showcasing a bookstore, a gift shop, a live café with promoting local restaurants. We are providing the opportunity for all to study the fundamental natures of knowledge, reality, and existence while focusing on academic discipline in African American history in City of Newark, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.

The exhibition tells the stories and highlights the culture from the beginning of slavery to the end. Socioeconomic factors and contributions, such as women fighting in World War II, provide insight and inspiration. The focus is on the History of Slavery and the Underground Railroad inNew Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania from the 1600’s to the 2000’s, with achievements spotlighted regardless of race or nationality.

“Our goal is to educate youth of all ages, colleges, universities, and worldwide history buffs”

Our Mission

Mission

The Sankofa African American 3D Museum is a virtual learning place that showcases rare collections of historical memorabilia from the 1600’s to the 2000’s. Our goal is to educate youth of all ages, colleges, universities, and worldwide history buffs.

Our History

The Sankofa African American 3D Museum’s History

Lawrence E. Walker Foundation Collection contains over three thousand documents over sixteen thousand, four hundred, and forty pictures, fourteen originally composed songs, and eighty historical film interviews with well-known historians such as Charles Blockson of Temple University, Dr. William Katz of New York, Dr. Clement Price of Rutgers University, the late Dr. Gary Hunter of Rowan University, and many more historians throughout the Tri-state area.  Within this collection, there is also included, footage of African Americans in the Revolutionary War and Civil War from the 1700’s through the 1800’s. This collection will be an important asset to an archival data base company for use in both the classroom and in lecture settings around the world. The Lawrence E. Walker Foundation Collection paints an invaluable portrait of four hundred years of African American history, from slavery to freedom, which traces the trail of the Underground Railroad and Slavery throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania & New York.

The collection’s multimedia presentation will focus on tracking the slave passage throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York through discovering relationships, interpreting evidence and connecting the past to the present. The collection will offer students, teachers, and the community direct access to local history which will speak directly from the past through integrating, gripping, original narratives, exciting imagery, dramatic voice-overs, and a doc-drama, using actors to reenact the flight of the slaves from the revolutionary period to the civil war and beyond.

The Lawrence E. Walker Foundation Collection would like to add to this collection our historical Oral Living Military History Collection, which includes over one hundred and sixty interviews, over four hundred photographs and research information about Veterans of the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World War II, the Korean War (1950-1953), the Vietnam War, Operation Desert Storm, and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

This will also include a look at the African American Woman’s during World War II, the Hispanic and Native American Veterans of the Korean War, as well as the history African American Units in Korea, which includes the 24th Infantry Regimental Combat Team, 396th Regiment out of New York City, the 2nd Ranger Infantry Company (Airborne), 555th Battalion (Airborne) from World War II, and the 999th Armored Field Artillery Battalion, perspective during the time-period of the Korean War, Prisoners of War Remembered and Personnel Missing in Action. All of this, and additional historical perspectives from various historians, will be covered by the filmmaker in this archival collection and historical film project.

Lawrence E. Walker strongly emphasize the importance of putting all this information into a computer archived database and on the new virtual 3D Museum for the community and the public to view. His passion is to education the world and not forget the history of African America culture. This collection will help the audience to understand war time in the past and the present, and to prepare for the future.
