Events Description

Africville Stories will present the latest poignant and uplifting stories about the people of Africville and their community.

Established in 1847, Africville was nestled on the shores of the Bedford Basin at the north end of Halifax and was Canada’s oldest black community, until it was razed in the late 1960s as an “urban improvement” measure. Africville overcame a multitude of challenges until the final building was demolished in 1970.

The stories surrounding George Dixon, Joe Louis, Portia White and Duke Ellington combine to create the legacy of this unique Canadian community. The rich stories and history of Africville Stories will be performed by Joe Sealy, Jackie Richardson and Paul Novotny. Joe Sealy is an Order of Canada recipient, radio broadcaster and composer/pianist who has presented Africville Stories in Scandinavia, the USA and across Canada.
