Black Loyalist Heritage Centre.

African Heritage Month starts tomorrow.

The Black Loyalist Heritage Centre in Shelburne will hold their annual proclamation at 11 a.m.

The centre says all are welcome to attend. Those attending are asked to consider bringing a non-perishable food item for the food bank.

The proclamation will feature performances by Akaya Shand and the Hillcrest Choir; remarks from the Black Loyalist Heritage Society and Municipalities of Shelburne and Barrington, a reading of the African Heritage Month Proclamation and the unveiling of the provincial poster.

The provincial theme of this year’s African Heritage Month is Seas of Struggle: African Peoples from Shore to Shore.

The Office of African Nova Scotian Affairs says the theme recognizes the resiliency, strength, and determination of people of African descent from the shores of Africa to the shores of Nova Scotia — with the Atlantic Ocean being the everlasting connection.

There will be a number of events at the Black Loyalist Heritage Centre this month such as a screening of the film John Ware Reclaimed on February 9 at 6:30 p.m., African Heritage Month Service and Social on February 26 at 1 p.m. and the African Nova Scotian Seafaring Project.
