The Capital Region Creative Corps program seeks to promote Tactical Urbanism Art in Placemaking through a media outreach and engagement campaign. The Sojourner Truth African Heritage Museum will focus on Social Justice and Community Engagement as part of this initiative. The primary objectives of the Capital Region Creative Corps Program are to create an economic and workforce development program and demonstrate how artists from multiple disciplines can play a crucial role in developing and implementing critical campaigns to address the most pressing community issues.

Roz Myers introduces her "Sankofa 2020:Afri-Hood, Queen Amina's 100 Gardens" and her zest for installing one hundred gardens in communities across Sacramento, California, and as far away as Cuba.

"Sankofa 2020:Afri-Hood provides exciting and engaging learning opportunities by implementing aquaponics programs in schools, institutions, and communities in need. She is also the author of the Blacks in Agriculture History Story Walk and was a presenter during the Environmental Justice session during the 2024 Black Heritage Festival. 

The Story Walk was installed in the courtyard at Florin Square for festival goers to read as they walk by, and also at the 5K Fun Run Walk at Sam Pannell Community Center. With her Blacks in Agriculture History Story Walk, she themed it as We left our "living food" in the South for the "living wages" in the North with the advances of refrigeration technology. 

Her call to action goal for this project is to create a demonstration project that shows how to garden vertically and in small spaces. Join us for Earth Day on April 13th, 2024, at Florin Square.
