If you cannot support the fund, consider taking action to demand reparations for Africville: https://www.collectiveaction.ca/africville
Africville was home to hundreds of individuals and families, and together they built a thriving, resilient and close‐knit community until it was expropriated by the Province of Nova Scotia and Halifax City Council.
From the early 1800s to 1970, Africville was home to many black families, schools and churches. However, the community was denied access to clean drinking water, paved roads and sewage.
Today the people of Africville are demanding reparations for the years of generational trauma, misfortune and lost opportunities for Africville residents and descendants.
An Africville registry platform where we can identify and engage with all descendants of Africville -- to ensure the best possible outcomes for the future of the community and the people.
Support this fund to support the development of the Africville registry platform.
