African Heritage Month: Opening Night Live Stream

TD presents African Heritage Month

Share in the community celebration to help launch African Heritage Month 2022! You'll enjoy virtual presentations, including: 

  • traditional ceremonies, 
  • musical entertainment, 
  • special guests, and 
  • prizes for participants.

Through Our Eyes: The Voices of African Nova Scotians is this year's provincial theme. With it, we recognize the longstanding history of people of African Descent in the development of Canada. We explore and examine the effects of anti-Black racism, and we honour the voices of African Nova Scotians who blazed the trail for change.‚Äč
