African Heritage Month 2018

African Heritage Month 2018

Sharing the History and Culture of African Nova Scotians

The 2018 African Heritage Month theme “Educate, Unite, Celebrate Community” will honour and pay homage to African Nova Scotians and their long legacy of uniting a passion that has provided a base to educate and celebrate an important part of Nova Scotia’s culture and Heritage.  The theme  embraces education and encourages all Nova Scotians with the desire  to educate oneself about African Nova Scotian history.  Together, we can unite and ignite the culture and heritage we share as a community as we observe the United Nations International Decade for People of African Descent from 2015-2024. This observation focuses on three pillars: Recognition, Justice, and Development.

The province of Nova Scotia has over 50 historic African Nova Scotian communities, dating back over 400 years. These communities have a unique and rich legacy of resistance, resilience and triumph that needs to be shared with all of Nova Scotia.  It is for this reason we must Educate, Unite and Celebrate African Heritage Month.
