|How blacks got to Nova Scotia
1749 - Halifax
Black pioneers came to Nova Scotia in two major migrations, 1783 and 1813, from the Thirteen British Colonies which became the United States of America. Most Black Pioneers came to Nova Scotia by ship. 1500 Black Pioneers landed at Port Roseway, now Shelburne. Black Pioneers arriving in 1813 landed at the busy port of Halifax and at Annapolis Royal.
In Nova Scotia we also have a Black Cultural Center. In this
center black students and even white students can learn more about
the slavery and there culture. The Black Cultural Center has all
differrent people, places and events that have contributed to our history,
like for instance the picture above of the missonares from Yarmouth N.S.
The people who visit this Centre in Dartmouth Nova scotia can become more
aware of what happened in the 18th century and even in the forties,
fifties and sixties. The cultural center was opened in 1983. The
center also has plays, music, actives, and exhibitions.
