Celebrate African Heritage with Halifax Public Libraries
Black history is everyone's history. Join us as we look back, and march forward, together.
Every year in February and the months that follow, Halifax Public Libraries, in partnership with the Black History Month Association and countless dedicated individuals and groups, offers high-quality programs that highlight and celebrate the rich diversity, culture, and heritage of our African Nova Scotian community and people of African Descent.
TD Bank Group is the generous presenting sponsor of African Heritage Month 2021 at Halifax Public Libraries. Their ongoing sponsorship—this year marks 6 years of support!—increases our capacity to host important programs and conversations, and expand our collection, year-round.
While 2021 will look different from the traditional, we are finding exciting and innovative ways to engage and honour our community and its rich history through virtual events, lifelong legacy pieces, and collaborative projects. This website is yours to explore, and will be updated frequently with ways for you to Listen, Learn, Share, and Act.
Community Conversations: Ending Violence in African Nova Scotian Communities - A Collective Responsibility
TD presents African Heritage Month at Halifax Public Libraries | Hosted on Zoom by partner
Join members of the Association of Black Social Workers (ABSW) in a virtual panel discussion on Zoom and discover how you can be involved in helping to end violence.
A panel of professionals will highlight the various projects ABSW has that deal with issues of violence in African Nova Scotian communities. You are invited to stay for an open discussion.
In partnership with the Association of Black Social Workers (ABSW)
Community Conversations is a series of ongoing opportunities for African Nova Scotians to share knowledge on issues of importance. The conversations will focus on the many assets in the African Nova Scotian community and how they can strengthen our relationships and make change together. Everyone is welcome to learn, listen, share, and act.
