"A people without knowledge of their past history, origin, and culture is like a tree without roots."
Akoma is represented by a heart and means patience, tolerance, and goodwill. It is one of many adinkra symbols that comes from the Akan tribe in Ghana. These symbols are concepts and aphorisms that are used daily in clothing, art, and furniture.
Akoma Books was started in 2015, out of love and necessity. It's necessary for everyone, especially black and brown brothers and sisters to learn about themselves, their history, present and future. Our mission is to help educate, empower, and promote cultural pride through our products and services.
We are temporarily online only and look forward to servicing you again in person in the upcoming months.
