I am LaNiece Thomas-Flagg, the travel coordinator for Sankofa US. Bishop Lance Davis has organized trips to Ghana, West Africa since 2002. I have been on board since 2010 planning trips for MTV host, Dometi Pongo; Chicago's Life Coach, Linal Harris, of Inspirational Perspective, and several others with the most recent being the illustrious Dr. Chip Johnson; well known throughout Chicago for his gifts in music and education. It is our joy to bring a unique, inspirational, educational, fun and exciting vacation to the diaspora!


This was the most amazing trip that I have ever taken in my life! It was full of both history and so much fun. The people that I met are new friends that I will have for a lifetime. I am so grateful for this life-changing experience that Sankofa US provided from the beginning to the end of the trip. The staff was so helpful and nurturing, the adventures were great, and the opportunities to see multiple cities in Ghana were scheduled perfectly. This is a trip that you don't want to miss. It is very affordable and the two weeks we spent there did not feel like enough, because everything was so amazing!

I had a lifechanging experience and learned so much more about my ancestors and African history. As a result of this experience I will never live my life again in the same way. I am grateful and would love to go again soon. Dr. Storey
