Our 3rd Annual Summit was on October 20-22, with a theme of "#BeTheSolution: Understanding Power & Healing the Community."
A HUGE thank you to all those who sponsored the event with their heartfelt and generous donations, all those who made the Summit possible, all the Community Health Workers and community members from near and far who came to join us.
Recordings of all the Summit sessions will be made available (around early-mid November) to anyone who attended in-person or virtually. If you could not attend in-person or via Zoom but would still like access to the session recordings, please contact us with your request.

The Sokoto House hosts a variety of events, some regular and some unique, but all to the benefit the participants, our community, and the free and healthy exchange of ideas and knowledge.

The following are a few examples.
The Ecology Project included meet and greets, various local vendors, ecology activists, keynote speakers, and short films, as well as a Black Lives Matter solidarity and neighborhood cleanup march.
Free Community Markets
These recurring events, organized by the Lowercase Leaders, feature an open market of donated goods that are all free to the community. Think of them as large yard sales where no money is needed.
Lowercase Leaders held a free outdoor screening of Wilmington on Fire, a documentary about the 1898 Wilmington coup and its aftermath, as well as a Q&A session with the filmmaker, Chris Everett of Speller Street Films.
Nights of Renaissance
Periodically, Sokoto House holds a Night of Renaissance, where people meet to experience and take part in sincere intellectual exchange, culture, art, music, and food. An open mic, healthy connections, and good vibes in a drug and alcohol-free environment are featured.
Audio services for many Sokoto House events is supplied by Keith Sweezy of Sweezy Sound Systems.
