A documentary about the history of Africville and what it tells us today.





What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

I learned about how Black people came to Canada in the 1770s and what their life was like.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I learned that we should always respect peoples' communities and not destroy them. Everyone should be treated the same because of their colour.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

As a Black Canadian I have more opportunities to use my voice and be heard and people are starting to listen to our concerns.
