For over a hundred years, the African Nova Scotian community resided in Africville. The community was destroyed in the 1960s to make way for industrial development. Forcibly relocated, the former residents of Africville and their descendants were scattered. In 2010 the people of Africville received an apology and the Africville Heritage Trush was established. Inside the Museum are exhibits that tell the story of a community that met the indignities of racism with grace and faith.
