Sankofa is a crucial coming-of-age poetry collection by esteemed Actor and Poet Lexia Tomlinson. When you are lost, sometimes the only option is to go back to the beginning to retrieve what is missing.

This collection is divided into three daring chapters, Past, Present, and Future. Spanning over a decade and peering into the future, Sankofa takes readers through an interdimensional-intersection.

There is something for everyone here: from punchy rhyming poetry that nods to why Lexia is a Slam Champion who’s booked and busy. To playful page poems that experiment with blank space. The poems’ topics are just as diverse, including the old poetic favourites of romance and heartbreak. There is also the factor of faith or lack of. The battle of the body and protecting the planet.

You will cry, you will laugh, but most importantly, you will retrieve a spark of personal power in your belly!
