Juanita B. Johnson is the Sankofa griot of our time. Her attraction to the concept of positive audacity began in childhood as she listened to fascinating dinner-table stories which featured the achievements of African American luminaries, change agents, and historical personalities. Those stories continue to serve as her North Star of fearlessness.
Juanita is an honor graduate of Dillard University and holds an MBA from The Ohio State University. Currently, she facilitates the Sankofa Chronicles, a web-based edutainment platform that instills price and self-confidence in children through its focus on character-building African American history and culture.
