New Book Details Nova Scotia's Black Communities
Book: "Historic Black Nova Scotia"
I discovered a new title that may enrich your library, "Historic Black Nova Scotia".
The history of Nova Scotia’s black communities is a complex story of triumph and struggle, intertwined with the many stories of ancestors, destinies, and challenges. The knowledge and insight of veteran authors Bridglal Pachai and Henry Bishop provide welcome guidance to the mosaic of Nova Scotian black history in Historic Black Communities.
Eleven chapters explore the African presence in Nova Scotia, and range from topics such as the influence of the church and the African United Baptist Association (AUBA); pioneers in publishing, law, politics and business; the legacy of Africville; heroes of sports, military, arts, and volunteer activism; Historic Black Communities provides a comprehensive, but always accessible entry into the many realms of black influence.” Historic Black Nova Scotia , Bridglal Pachai & Henry Bishop ISBN - 1-55109-551-3 may be ordered from http://www.thewhirligigbookshop.com ($19.95 – PAPERBACK)
