Take a moment to savour the persistent community pride of Africville, Nova Scotia, by strolling A Walk Through Africville. Feel the Comforts of Home on loan from the Africville Museum until February 28, 2020. Be reminded of the symbolic importance of this community, located on the shores of Bedford Basin for more than 100 years. The exhibit offers a time to reflect on the heart-wrenching story of injustice and racism, while reminding us of the strength and resilience of its residents and descendants.
