WHAT YOUR STUDENTS
Students will see, hear and learn about the once-prominent Black settlement on the shores of the Bedford Basin, Africville.
Through the power of storytelling, students will gain a deeper understanding of the severe hardships endured by Black migrants to Canada throughout the centuries.
Students will be challenged by thought-provoking questions and answers from voices in the Black community. Does racism still exist in Canada? What responsibility do we each have towards ending it?
