Shelburne African Heritage Month Proclamation

February 1 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

Join us as we launch African Heritage Month 2023. This year’s provincial theme is Seas of Struggle: African Peoples from Shore to Shore. This theme “recognizes the resiliency, strength, and determination of people of African descent from the shores of Africa to the shores of Nova Scotia — with the Atlantic Ocean being the everlasting connection.” (Office of African Nova Scotian Affairs)

The proclamation will feature performances by Akaya Shand and the Hillcrest Choir; remarks from the the Black Loyalist Heritage Society, Municipality of the District of Shelburne and Municipality of Barrington; reading of the African Heritage Month Proclamation; and the unveiling of the provincial poster.
