Stolen from Africville

The story of “Stolen From Africville” outlines the rise and fall of the historic Black community of Africville Nova Scotia. Africville was a peaceful and thriving community whose roots can be traced back to the mid 1700s and the historic Underground Railroad. However, under the guise of “development”, the Nova Scotia government bulldozed the land in 1969... In 2004 the United Nations conducted an assessment of this tragic injustice and recommended reparations for the Africville community. To this day nothing has been done.
