The Dr. Harris L. Barton Scholarship Launch & Information Session

6:30 PM – 8:30 PM


TD presents African Heritage Month at Halifax Public Libraries | Hosted on Zoom by our Partner.

Join us for the launch and information session for The Dr. Harris L. Barton Scholarship. The award honours the life of Dr. Harris L. Barton, an openly gay African Nova Scotian community leader and doctor who was raised in the North End of Halifax. 

The annual scholarship aims to shine a mirror of representation, recognition, kinship, and loving support towards Black LGBTQIA2S+ student awardees. The award will be funded annually by Dr. Rachel Zellars at Saint Mary's University.

Before you join us on Zoom, you are encouraged to read more about the criteria, learn about the scholarship's namesake, and to take a look at the application form.

In partnership with the Health Association for African Canadians
