Celebrate African Heritage Month 2019

Posted by GHO Admin on January 29, 2019 in Events

Date: February 2019
Location: Various locations around Nova Scotia

From the Office of African Nova Scotian Affairs

The 2019 provincial theme, Our History is Your History, recognizes the unique story of African Nova Scotians and how this story is interwoven throughout the past, present and future of all Nova Scotians. The theme reminds us that when we all acknowledge and understand the truths of our shared history through awareness, cooperation, dialogue and learning, we will be able to facilitate positive change in Nova Scotia.

This year’s theme also aligns with the United Nations’ International Decade for People of African Descent, commonly known as DPAD, with the goal to strengthen global cooperation in support of people of African descent as they strive for full inclusion in all aspects of society.
