Africville-The Lost Town

This site from CBC News provides in-depth information about Africville: how it developed, the relocation of Africville residents, and the effects of relocation on former residents. The text shows the different points of view on the issue, and can provide a springboard for discussion of activities related to racial discrimination.

Mi'kmaq Oral Histories
This site gives students an opportunity to read oral histories from Nova Scotia Mi'kmaqs. Students can learn about the importance of oral histories as primary sources, and compare the impact of an oral history's personal perspective with secondary sources, such as the student text.
