The Office of Black Church Studies at Duke Divinity School will hold its 2020 Sankofa Black Alumni Preaching Series during the month of February, featuring preaching from notable Duke Divinity alumni at a worship service each week as part of Black History Month. Sankofa can be translated to mean "go back to the past and bring forward that which is helpful."
