African Heritage Month 2023

Celebrate African Heritage Month!

February is African Heritage Month! This year's theme, Seas of Struggle – African Peoples from Shore to Shore, recognizes the resiliency, strength, and determination of people of African descent from the shores of Africa to the shores of Nova Scotia – with the Atlantic Ocean being the everlasting connection.

• While you’re at the library, borrow books that will inspire the whole family to learn more about African heritage.
• Visit local heritage sites, such as the Black Cultural Centre, the Africville Museum, and the Black Loyalist Heritage Centre.
