Being Black & Beautiful in Nova Scotia

6:00 PM – 7:30 PM


TD presents African Heritage Month at Halifax Public Libraries

Hosted on Zoom by the Library

Join the Black Beauty Culture Association of Nova Scotia (BBCA) for a 2-night, online forum celebrating Being Black and Beautiful in Nova Scotia. We will be discussing injustices, inequality, and inequity in the beauty industry in the province. This forum is a follow-up to our 2020 program, The Black Hair-Story of Nova Scotia.

The first session will include information about the Black Hair Matters Movement and what to expect from the Black Beauty Culture Association, and some information about an upcoming community consultation concerning the proposed Black Beauty Culture Hair Innovators (BBCHI) Apprenticeship course and how to make sure there is clarity that BBCHI activities and services are not regulated under the Cosmetology Act.

The second session will be a hair care demonstration, product information and a question and answer about Black Hair care for the whole family.

In partnership with The Black Beauty Culture Association
