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.
