Sankofa Waters has been invited as a keynote speaker, presenter and community discussant at several institutions around the country including Chicago State University, Wake Forest University, Northeastern University (Boston), CUNY Queens College and the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM.) Regardless if the audience is 200+ or 15, she always speaks candidly and intimately. The heart of her talks and workshops rests in her ability to create "call and response" exchanges that are textured with her lived experiences as a "college dropout", academic writing coach, family archivist, university professor, researcher, freedom dreamer, and co-conspirator of justice praxis. In this way, she invites audience members to dig into their own lived experiences and examine ways they can collectively build across communities and institutions.
