Africentric Heritage Park

New Glasgow, Canada

Visitors are invited to experience the park, which is situated on Vale Road in the South end of New Glasgow. The park, opened in 2000, bears the inscription “to our children” and was created to commemorate the past, focus on the present and provide a foundation for the cultural future of Nova Scotians of African descent. At the heart of the park is the pyramid-shaped design of the building, which symbolizes the pyramids of Egypt. Each side of the building represents a portion of the history and migration story of the Black community in Nova Scotia. Source: http://www.newglasgow.ca/

Viola Desmond Place of Burial

Halifax, Canada

Civil Rights Figure, Activist. She was a Canadian Black Nova Scotian businesswoman who challenged racial segregation at a film theatre in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, in 1946. She refused to leave a whites-only area of the Roseland Theatre and was convicted of a minor tax violation for the one-cent tax difference between the seat she had paid for and the seat she used. Desmond's case is one of the most publicized incidents of racial discrimination in Canadian history and helped start the modern civil rights movement in Canada. In 2010, Desmond was granted a posthumous pardon, the first to be granted in Canada. The government of Nova Scotia also apologized for prosecuting her for tax evasion, and acknowledged she was rightfully resisting racial discrimination. In 2012 Viola Desmond was honored by Canada Post with her image on a postage stamp, and on March 8, 2018 the new Canadian $10 bill with her image was introduced to the public. Desmond was also named a National Historic Person in 2018. Bio courtesy of: Wikipedia

Nurturing Strong African Nova Scotian Families Parenting Program

East Preston, Canada

Open to residents across Nova Scotia. This parenting program was developed specifically for African Nova Scotian parents/caregivers raising African Nova Scotian children; recognizing the cultural, racial, and historical factors that impact African Nova Scotian families and the specific task the parent/caregivers of (ANS) parents have in helping their children understand and respond to the realities of race and culture. The Nurturing Strong African Nova Scotian Families parenting program was developed in response to the lack of culturally specific parenting programs that address the realities of African Nova Scotians parents and children. The program is grounded in important research out of Canada and the United States on the historical and lived realities of Black families, parents and children. In addition, the program includes valuable and ongoing feedback provided by African Nova Scotian parents. The Nurturing Strong African Nova Scotian Families parenting program is based on the belief that the family and the community have a shared responsibility to care for and protect their children which is best captured in the African proverb, ”It takes a village to raise a child.” it also focuses on cultural pride reinforcement (CPR) which includes teaching and modelling for children how to feel good about themselves and their cultural heritage.
