A Legacy at Risk: The Struggle for Land Titles in North Preston

When: Sat., Feb. 10, 2 p.m. 2018

A session on the murky history of land ownership in North Preston and other historic Black neighbourhoods in Nova Scotia that features videos from the award-winning journalism project “Untitled: The Legacy of Land in North Preston.” "For years, many residents of North Preston and other historic Black communities in Nova Scotia have been fighting to get clear titles to their land. When the land was granted to their ancestors more than 200 years ago, they were not given title, which means even today land cannot be legally passed down to family members and could be sold off by the Crown," event organizers explain.
