Celebrate African Heritage with Halifax Public Libraries
Learn. Share. Explore. Experience.
2022 marks the 38th year of official African Heritage Month celebrations in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The Library, in partnership with the Black History Month Association and community partners, is proud to help share and highlight community voices, talents, and history. This year, we will begin with a variety of virtual, live streamed, and online experiences, and we hope to expand to in-person events once it is safe to do so.
The TD Ready Commitment is the presenting sponsor of African Heritage Month 2022 at Halifax Public Libraries. Their support makes it possible for us to host and share high quality African Heritage programs and content throughout the month of February and year-round.
We hope you enjoy exploring this site and fill up your calendar with events, reading, and viewing, and check back often. This celebration of African Nova Scotian and Black history, heritage, and culture will span throughout 2022 and new content will be added frequently.
