Events Guide: Film Screening of “Africville: Can’t Stop Now!”

HALIFAX– With the recent apology to the former residents of Africville still fresh in everyone’s minds, NSPIRG’s (Nova Scotia Public Interest Research Group) screening of Juanita Peters’ 2009 documentary, Africville: Can’t Stop Now!, is providing those interested with a forum for discussion on the topic of Africville’s past, present and future. Human rights activist and critic of the Africville Genealogy Society’s deal with the city, Denise Allen, is among the guest speakers scheduled to talk after the film.

For those interested in learning more about the people who have maintained the Africville community, despite the loss of its physical home, head to Dal campus tomorrow evening for some coffee, tea, and food for thought.
