The Red River Sankofa Project seeks to research, document and preserve under-reported African American burial grounds in NW Louisiana and NE Texas. The area of focus, a rather remote, but bountiful region along the upper Red River of Louisiana and along the Texas Louisiana border provides a plethora of forgotten, historical content regarding the contributions of African Americans who originally settled the area. We are also extremely interested in genealogical ties to this place and have been collecting and publishing data some find useful for family research.
