Re: “Being Black and a tourist in Halifax

You're absolutely right. This is what I tried to convey in the article. It's a difference you only see and feel once you live and experience different places across the country. I have had the opportunity to travel coast to coast and I hope to write a book about my experiences one day, as a Black Canadian, travelling in my own country. It's been an adventure to say the least! Thanks for your comments. I forgot to include my twitter handle in the piece but you can follow me on Twitter @DrCherylT

Re: “Gentrifying Blackness in Halifax's inner city

This issue is really happening across the country in a lot of historical black communities. I live in Toronto and there are many parts of the city that are part of black history that are today commercial areas. Unless you do the work, you would have no idea that this was a thriving black community 80 years ago. I taught Black Canadian Studies at the University of Toronto for several years, and I introduced my students to Africville and Black Halifax. They had never heard of either, that is, their education primarily in Ontario and Quebec had told them nothing of Black community not only in Ontario and Quebec but Nova Scotia as well. This, to me, is part of the collective problem. In Canada we have no sense of a national Black history that affects us all because there are so many parallels between us coast to coast. Thanks for writing this! It got me thinking a lot!
