Mensimah Shabazz’s memoir, Sankofa: Learning from Hindsight, is a beautiful autobiography about her life and experiences along the way to self-realization and strength. It is filled with spiritual insights and life empowering soundness. Full of wisdom and intelligence, Shabazz grew up in Ghana, West Africa. She compares the different cultures and how they affected her as an African woman. She describes the rigid orders placed upon her and how she overcame them through spiritual transcendence that lead to overwhelming empowerment.

She writes with both dignity and emotion, telling of her struggles and triumphs, in a language that is honest and clear. Her story is very relatable for any woman, and she states that spiritual transcendence is the key to personal empowerment and wisdom.

This is one of the best memoirs I have ever read. As it is not only the story of Mensimah Shabazz’s experiences, but it is also a self-help guide for all people who are seeking healing, self-empowerment, wisdom and joy. It is written very well and embodies the graciousness, dignity and wisdom that Mensimah Shabazz possesses.

The author of Sankofa: Learning from Hindsight, Mensimah offers a unique perspective on spiritual and intuitive living drawn from her multi-cultural, multi-lingual and indigenous background.

“Sankofa: Learning from Hindsight is autobiographical and begins with my life growing up in Ghana, West Africa. It presents a cross-cultural perspective living in different countries (Ghana, Italy, Brazil, United States) and synthesizes ancient wisdom from my culture. I articulate the tremendous demands made on me as an African woman, and share ways of using spiritual transcendence as a vehicle towards empowerment.

This story also shares the wisdom, resilience and unforgettable lessons as in many women’s stories. I believe that every woman that reads “Sankofa: Learning from Hindsight,” especially those searching to recap and bring value to their life experiences, would benefit immensely from the transformational processes that are highlighted, and experience love, peace, joy and abundance.”
