Managing Partner Larry James and his wife, Donna James, will both be recognized as Legacy Honorees of Sankofa 2022: Celebration of Leadership. Sankofa is Columbus Afrocentric Early College PK-12’s annual signature event to honor the contributions of African American leaders from the Greater Columbus Area. The event will be broadcast live on Tuesday, February 22, 2022 at 7:30 PM on NBC4.
“Sankofa” is a term that comes from the Twi language of Ghanaian origin. It represents the wisdom of learning from the past to build a more productive future. Mr. and Mrs. James have embodied this term through their work as the co-founders of the African American Leadership Academy. The African American Leadership Academy offers a strength-based curriculum focused on efficacy, leadership agility, and leadership interaction. The mission of the program is to increase the number of African American leaders in Central Ohio. Also, the goal is to broaden the awareness of the wide pool of capable and civic minded African American professionals.
Crabbe, Brown & James is a founding sponsor of the African American Leadership Academy. We are proud to support Mr. and Mrs. James’s commitment to creating opportunities to showcase the strength of African American leaders in Central Ohio. We look forward to celebrating them as Legacy Honorees of Sankofa 2022.
