This thirty-five minute documentary film presents an introduction to the issue of Africville, a black community on the outskirts of Halifax which was demolished in the 1960s. The Africville case study offers an opportunity to analyze racism, social planning, and community organizing in a Canadian context. The video includes archival footage, home movies and photographs of life in the community. It also contains excerpts from a 1989 conference where former residents, politicians and planners gathered to reflect on the reasons for and impact of the city''''s decision. The video can be used alongside the book, The Spirit of Africville. The book and the film each offer unique insights into the Africville story and enrich understanding of this landmark social and political event.
