Vol. 3 No. 1 (2023): Special Edition: Community-Based Research
In keeping with our mission to engage with collaborators in community and center knowledges produced outside the academy, the Sankofa Network for Transformative Community Research (SNTCR), hired a community based researcher to produce a special edition chapter on the realm of their expertise.
Rayanne Banaga is a community mental health educator and counsellor who uses alternative frameworks that reference Afrocentric and Indigenous healing practices. In line with the main principle of the network, Sankofa, she aims to analyze how the past has understood Black psychology to bring forth only what is useful. Their work is formed to empower folks though psychoeducation and is practiced through mutual aid and peer support and can be found at surviving-together.com.
