As part of African Heritage Month, Saint Mary’s University Library in Halifax is proud to host an event and exhibit highlighting the Lynn Jones African-Canadian & Diaspora Heritage Collection, a major recent addition to the University Archives. The Collection chronicles over 50 years of African, African Diasporic and African-Nova Scotian heritage and history, including civil rights and social justice struggles, Lynn & her family members' lives and activism, and diverse local, regional and international aspects of Black life, through everything from an obituary collection to news clippings, programs, reports and political campaign literature.
An Exhibition of samples from the Collection will run February 1-28 in the lobby of the Patrick Power Library at Saint Mary’s. The public is invited to join Lynn and folks using the Collection to learn about of the Collection’s history and some of the way in which it’s being used, Tuesday, February 13 from 5:15 pm - 6:15 pm, in the SMU Library Classroom (room LI135).
The Collection Exhibition will be on display throughout the entire month.
