Bronx River Sankofa with Morgan Powell: Ten Years and Counting

Morgan and Abu

Morgan Powell with Abu Talib, Taqwa Community Farm

In April, Morgan Powell reached the 10 year milestone in his research on Blacks in the Bronx, especially those in, around and influenced by the Bronx River. Morgan has drawn from diverse and sometimes obscure sources to reveal the greater worth of Black contribution that is often purposely overlooked and has made their history contemporary.

He volunteers lately at Taqwa Community Farms in the Bronx with Abu Talib and I recently chatted with Morgan about what I believe is his masterwork to date: Bronx River Sankofa – 100 Golden Moments. The link below provides an incredible annotated 100 slide tour. I had the great fortune to go on the inaugural walking tour and have enjoyed the in-gallery talks several times. As the expression goes, “you owe it to yourself” to take the Bronx River Sankofa Virtual Tour.

    Hi Morgan,
    Recently caught your appearance on Bronx Perspectives and heard about your blog. I remember you and your passion for the environment during our meeting and discussions through the Literary Society. I love your blog and all the information it contains. I have placed it in my favorites. Hope to see you soon. Rosi
