Description

Africville, a 120-year-old Black community within the city limits of Halifax, was razed in the name of urban renewal in the 1960s. Eighty families were relocated, many of them ending up on welfare or in public housing. Former residents talk about racism, good intentions gone astray, and a community lost forever.
