Following an unanimous vote by MPs, August 1 is now officially Emancipation Day in Canada. This is a day of Black joy, Black rest, and Black celebration. It is also a time for reparations.
Celebrating Emancipation Day in Kjipuktuk/Halifax is honouring the long legacy and contribution of African Nova Scotians in this province and the commitment to unlearning Anti-Black racism and pushing for Black Liberation, in our own backyards and globally.
