_______________________________________________________ “The Africville Heritage Trust is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to telling the story of Africville, a predominantly Black community that existed for about 100 years on the shores of the Bedford Basin in Halifax's North End. The community was neglected and subject to various forms of marginalization, including environmental racism by the city of Halifax, right up until the residents were forced to leave in the 1960's. The Trust maintains the Africville Museum and interpretive centre, which exists in a replica of the Seaview United Baptist Church. The goals of the Africville Heritage Trust include providing a space and resources for public education, supporting the Black Nova Scotian community through events and initiatives such as scholarship funds, and ultimately, keeping the spirit of Africville alive as we continue to fight against inequality and injustice.” www.africvillemuseum.com
