In consideration of the neighborhood's troubled past, coupled with a spirit of celebration for the various groups of people who moved through the area, and renewed interest in rebuilding the community, "connecting with one's history in order to move forward" became the concept for this site's branding and identity. In the same vein, "Sankofa," which comes from a West African Adinkrap symbol and translates into "learning from the past," was selected as the name for the new housing development.
