About Me


We are counselors and educators who founded and direct a culturally based counseling firm: THE AKOMA HOUSE INITIATIVE. We are creators of AKOMA DAY: a seven day, cultural holiday celebration of Black Love celebrated from Feb 14th - Feb 20th. It's symbol of introduction is the AKOMA an ancient Afrikan(Adinkra) symbol ♥ that is commonly miscalled the heart today.


Although Akoma Day is officially celebrated for one week from February 14th to February 20th, the holiday is to be embodied throughout the year as a tool to attain the pinnacle level of LOVE!


The following serves as a general outline for each Akoma Day whether you are celebrating as an individual, couple or family group:


Akoma Sherehe/Love Celebration

Begin each day with a prayer welcoming the divine presence into your celebration

Pour libation for the ancestors and those shining examples of black love- families, couples, organizations that lovingly serve the Black family

Light mishumma (candles) to represent the illumination of our souls

Ask focus questions related to the virtue and principle of the day

Share purpose, mission and vision statements of all willing participants

Taste the uchungu (bitter), utamu (sweet), and maji (bland)

State your agano (pledge) to the Black family for that day’s corresponding virtue and principle
