From Watts to Wisconsin, Kenneth Cole is looking to make a positive impact on the social, political, and economic struggles that he and many African Americans face through both activism and music.

He performs by the name “K. Sankofa.” “Sankofa” is a Ghanaian proverb which translates as “Go back and get it” … a phrase and name he now lives by. He learned the name at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, through the social justice and diversity involvement he became active in on campus.

Cole came from the west coast to the Midwest in pursuit of a degree and found activism as well as a life-changing reconnection to his passion: music.
