Educational Interactive on the Transatlantic Slave Trade
This FREE educational resource follows the journey of two rappers, Jelly from Toronto and Yoshi from Atlanta, as they retrace actual slave trading routes across Georgia, USA, Ontario, Canada and Gold Coast, Ghana. We made this resource for educators to enhance Black history curriculums and to bring more culturally relevant, responsive and engaging content into classrooms. We hope this resource inspires, connects and better informs students and educators alike about the transatlantic slave trade and how it's shaped so much of the world we experience today.

STOLEN FROM AFRICVILLE
Our 2007 documentary "Stolen From Africville" outlines the rise and fall of the historic Black community of Africville Nova Scotia. Africville was a peaceful and thriving community whose roots can be traced back to the mid-1700s and the historic Underground Railroad. However, under the guise of "development", the government of Nova Scotia bulldozed the land in 1969. In 2004, the United Nations conducted an assessment of this tragic injustice and recommended reparations for the Africville community. Full documentary is available below.
