INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (February 7, 2015) — The Indiana State Museum celebrated the annual Sankofa Black Heritage Festival on Saturday.

The celebration was in honor of February which is Black History Month.

A group of Hoosiers came together to take part in the celebration this weekend.

Sankofa symbolizes the importance of looking back and learning from the past.
