Our aim is to shed light on the realities of anti-Black racism and foster understanding, awareness, and action toward a more inclusive and equitable society.
Throughout history, African Nova Scotians have made significant contributions to our province and country, despite facing enduring racial inequalities. African Nova Scotians have demonstrated remarkable resilience, resourcefulness, and strength from the legacy of the Black Loyalists, Jamaican Maroons, Black Refugees, and Connections to the Caribbean and the vibrant cultural heritage of today’s communities.
This page serves as a platform to explore the roots and manifestations of anti-Black racism, examining its historical context, its impact on individuals and communities, and the intersecting factors that contribute to its perpetuation. Understanding the African Nova Scotians’ specific challenges can work together to dismantle systemic barriers and promote a society where everyone can thrive.
Through curated resources, personal stories, and empowering initiatives, we aim to inform, engage, and inspire action. We invite you to explore our content, learn about the experiences of African Nova Scotians, and discover how you can actively contribute to the fight against anti-Black racism.
By acknowledging the importance of an African Nova Scotian perspective and amplifying diverse voices, we can collectively strive for a future that upholds justice, equity, and inclusion for all. Join us on this journey as we work towards building a society free from discrimination and racism.
