Canadian Black culture was born in Nova Scotia; the Black Cultural Centre for Nova Scotia is dedicated to its preservation and promotion. Guided tours are available or you can wander alone through the archives. There are displays, some audio-visual items focusing on a rich musical tradition, as well as a library. In the amphitheater you may watch a cultural performance or hear a lecture on the history of the people who have lived in Nova Scotia. Call ahead for more details.
