Sankofa Mixer and Pop-up Marketplace

08/18/2022 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


We are excited to announce this year’s GRABB Sankofa Mixer & Pop-up marketplace!

Sankofa means “one must return to the past in order to move forward.” Thus the Akan believe that the past serves as a guide for planning the future. To the Akan, it is this wisdom in learning from the past which ensures a strong future.

GRABB Sankofa Mixer & Pop-up marketplace celebrating emerging Black entrepreneurs. From artisan candles and soap, to fresh baked goods and handmade wares, GRABB Sankofa Mixer & Pop-up marketplace will feature an exciting and diverse range of local vendors. Shop the Pop-up marketplace and support your neighborhood business economy in Grand Rapids!

Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn of GRABB’s Past (What we have done), Present (What we are currently doing), and Future (What we have in the works).
