Trip to Africville **Postponed** | Africville | Sunday, 11. February 2018

Come join TBT in conversation about the history of Africville. We will be heading out to the location where the community was demolished in the 1960s by the Halifax Regional Municipality on the shore of the Bedford Basin in North End of Halifax.

We will be meeting in front of the Killam Library at 11AM and taking the 7# to Africville Park.

This trip will have a low to moderate level of activity. This trip will be less focused on hiking and more focused on dialogue. We will be staying within the city of Halifax. Participants are encouraged to come prepared with good walking shoes, water, a snack and be dressed for the weather!

This trip is sponsored by the DSU. The only fee is the cost of the bus and we will have free bus tickets available if the cost would be a barrier to you. Feel free to message us if there is a way we could make the trip more accessible to you.
  • Important Update: At the time this event was published we thought we had a member from the Africville community confirmed to be present to help make up for the Museum being closed. We have been trying to re-finalize this in the past few days yet haven’t been able to in time. Our sincere apologies. For this reason the event is being postponed until we can, or will be redirected to a time when folks can visit the museum. The event page will be left open to allow for continued discourse. If anyone is in contact with folks from the Africville community who might be interested and comfortable with being present we would greatly appreciate it if you could help us get in contact. We are able to compensate the individual for their time or make a donation to a community group of which they are a part of if the person is open to this. Thank you to everyone who has provided insight, tips, and suggestions.

  • Does Eddie Carvery support this event? Is he involved in the planning and organizing? What about the people of Africville? Are any of those involved in this event actually from Africville?
  • I'm a little bit confused about the nature of this event - is it meant to just be a walk through the park/upper track? Is the intent to learn about the community? Because if it's the latter, doing this trip while the museum is open (Tuesday-Friday during the winter), or getting in touch with an elder and inviting them to come along would probably make the trip more informative!
