African Nova Scotians in Cape Breton

Book - 2007
Rate this:
The story of African settlement in Cape Breton was barely documented and on the verge of being lost. In 2006, the African Nova Scotian community in Glace Bay decided to restore a derelict meeting hall of the Universal Negro Improvement Association from the early decades of the 20th century. As part of that project, the community created a museum to recognize and celebrate the history of the black community in Cape Breton.

Because so little is know about that history, the UNIA Cultural Museum commissioned research and from that effort, this book was born. It begins with slaves and ends with the appointment of the first black Lt. Gov. of Nova Scotia. It tells stories that were all but lost from living memory, like the shocking Glace Bay race riot of 1918.
