On Thursday, February 17th we hosted a virtual viewing of Africville: Can’t stop now, by Juanita Peters. “Located on the northern shore of Bedford Basin, Africville was home to the many African-Canadian families who lived there for generations. In the 1960s, the city of Halifax expropriated Africville and residents were forced to leave their homes and businesses behind. Today, former residents of Africville are fighting for reparations and an official apology. This film presents a community that has survived despite having lost its home” If you weren’t able to join us but would like to know more about Africville please visit there website by clicking here.
