BOOK - Historic Black Nova Scotia
By Bridglal Pachai and Henry Bishop
Published by Nimbus Publishing, Halifax, 2006

Softcover... 19.95 (C$)

The black communities of Nova Scotia have deep roots in the province and a history of striving to succeed in the face of racial discrimination.

Historic Black Nova Scotia is a comprehensive yet concise new look at this important part of Nova Scotia's history, covering the whole period of black settlement, from the eighteenth century to the late twentieth century, and every black community in the province.

Based on a lifetime of research, this fully illustrated volume features Nova Scotia's most important black communities as well as in-depth profiles of black pioneers in every field. These profiles reflect the diversity of the African Nova Scotian experience- from Marie Hamilton, a schoolteacher who educated generations of black children, to James Robinson Johnston, the first African Nova Scotian lawyer; from Portia White, one of Canada's most famous musicians, to William P. Oliver and the many other pastors who have helped to keep the black community strong.

An invaluable record of the past, and an inspiration for the future, Historic Black Nova Scotia is a major contribution to the cultural history of Nova Scotia.
