Eclectic furniture designed by Ann Johnson and her team, permanently installed at the Brazos Valley African American Museum

Artist and social activist Ann Johnson and her team designed furniture for the BVAAM, based on African Adinkra symbols depicting universal concepts such as nurturance, endurance, and loyalty.  Fabricated by the Texas A&M “FabLab”, and rich in cultural ancestral connection, the “Sankofa” symbol literally means to “go back and get”.
