    New Exhibit Explores Roots of Black Press in Nova Scotia Featured

    The Acadia Art Gallery is exploring the Black Press tradition in Nova Scotia with an exhibit put together by recent Acadia graduate Sawyer Carnegie.

    It's titled “The Nova Scotia Black Press Tradition: Resisting through Print.”

    It features an original copy of Nova Scotia’s first Black newspaper, The Atlantic Advocate (1910s) on loan from the Esther Clark Wright Archives, and prints from The Nova Scotia Gleaner (1920s), The Clarion (1940s), and Coppertone, a news magazine (1960s). 

    This gallery show, which is part of a larger SSHRC-funded project titled “Canada’s 19th Century Black Press: Roots & Trajectories of Exceptional Communication & Intellectual Activism,” is but a small glimpse into the tradition of the Black Press, to celebrate its existence, its resistance, and its legacy.

    The exhibit runs til April 12.
