African Heritage Month 2022 - Through Our Eyes

The 2022 African Heritage Month theme, Through Our Eyes: The Voices of African Nova Scotians, recognizes the legacies of people of African descent through first voice, lived realities, and experiences.

The theme highlights that when we listen to others’ perspectives, interpretation, and views on the world, particularly those from marginalized communities, we will gain a more meaningful understanding on how to make our world a better place.

Nova Scotia has more than 50 historic African Nova Scotian communities with a long, deep, and complex history dating back over 400 years. African Heritage Month provides another opportunity to celebrate and promote the culture, legacy, achievements, and contributions of people of African descent in Nova Scotia – past and present.
