Posted by SOSA Webteam on March 5, 2015 in News, Events, Research

Dr. Afua Cooper has been partnering with the Canadian Maritime Heritage Foundation and some of Halifax's most exciting poets, writers, performers and videographers to create Black Halifax: Stories from Here, a project consisting of 14 videotaped stories about personalities, landscapes, and events that have enduring meaning for African Nova Scotians and for the broader community. The launch of Black Halifax takes place on March 5 at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. The project was also profiled in The Coast and Dr. Cooper was interviewed on the Sheldon McLeod Show on News 95.7 (interview begins at 16'52).
