Sankofa Community Connection officially opens new location

During an outdoor ceremony with guests socially distanced, Sankofa Community Connection cut the ribbon on its new headquarters at 2 Broadway in Newport. The four-year-old organization is a member of the Rhode Island Expansion Arts current cohort.
