Sankofa African Jewellery

Ellen Agyeman the brand owner for over 20 years, and her daughter Rachel Adejobi have successfully worked together to produce generational wealth and spread ancestral knowledge of Ashanti culture throughout the Bay Area and beyond. The dynamic duo collaborates and partners with fabric, wood, stone, and fine mineral designers and craftsmen primarily in the North, East, West, and South African regions.

Sankofa Oakland believes in and practices the gift of returning home and bringing those who have been left behind to a present filled with peace, encouragement, and power. We show our love by collaborating with Oakland Black grassroot non-profit organizations such as Attitudinal Healing Connection (, Earn2Learn teen employment program, and Black Love Movement ( to provide food and sanitary/essential supplies to low-income/homeless community members.
