This event will feature discussion of the local, regional, and global, living historical context of Reparations for Slavery, and the importance of archival materials and grassroots/community activism in establishing the basis for a Reparations claim.
Illustrative archival material from the Lynn Jones of African Nova Scotian and Diaspora Heritage Collection from Saint Mary's University Archives will help inform us.
Dr. Rachel Zellars from Social Justice and Community Studies at SMU will present her archival research on the living history of slavery in the Maritimes, and Lynn Jones and other Special Community Guests will join the conversation.
A community meet and greet session will follow the presentation. Attendees can further examine collection materials and continue the discussion.
