sankofa.jpgOrangeburg, S.C. - South Carolina State’s student organization Changing the Perception Inc. will present the Sankofa Show on Tuesday, March 24, 2009 in the Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium at 7 p.m. on the campus of SC State. 
The mission of Changing the Perception Inc. is to transform the negative perceptions that are associated with certain aspects of Orangeburg, South Carolina’s community environment. Changing the Perception Inc. stimulates growth of positive youth based initiatives, the improvement of racial harmony, decreasing voter apathy, and improving the city’s health and environmental standards.  
Changing the Perception Inc. aims to implement change through community service projects that emphasize racial harmony and increases public awareness about health and environmental issues.   
The Sankofa Show’s symbol is the Sankofa. The icon is a bird with his body facing forward and his head looking back, it symbolizes the fact that in order to progress you have to know from whence you came. Sankofa is an Akan word that means, ‘we must go back and reclaim our past so we can move forward; so we understand why and how we came to be who we are today.’ 
The Sankofa Show will also showcase various talents to include: singers, dancers, steppers, entertainers, and spoken word artists.
Proceeds from the Sankofa Show will be donated to the American Cancer Society. The event is funded through community grants from organizations, such as www.dosomething.org.
For more information about the Changing the Perception Inc. or the Sankofa Show contact Zachary Middleton at (803)378-2054.
