A peak inside
If you found the history you learned as a child, erased your people from the story, what would you do, or say and who would you say it to?
This compelling and thought provoking question is at the root of the noteworthy and inspiring book,
BLM COLLECTION ~ Soul to Soil.
This book emanated from the epic journey Nicola Jane embarked on, the "Sankofa 100 Miles To Freedom Tour 2022."
The tour was designed to bring awareness to the African Diaspora Freedom Fighters of Southwestern Ontario, their resilience, tenacity and heroism.
"Nicola Jane is a wealth of knowledge, her connection to the Earth runs deep. She has the wisdom of her ancestors while sharing from a place of kindness and reverence".
WATERLOO PUBLIC SCHOOL BOARD
"Nicola Jane has a deep understanding of the soil. Which has translated to me having more pollinators in my gardens! I had the lucky fortune to meet her on her Sankofa 2022 van tour. Her YouTube videos have helped my understanding of Ecological Wellness".
