A complimentary screening of an episode from CBC’s Black Life: Untold Stories will be held at Halifax Central Library on Thursday, May 2, 2024, from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

The episode is the beginning of an eight-part documentary series that reframes the rich and complex histories of Black experiences in Canada. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Portia Clark from CBC’s Information Morning and a reception.

Presented in partnership with the Black Life Impact Foundation, the event will feature the episode, “Claiming Space.” Directed by Frances-Anne Solomon, it is a lyrical journey through the growth of Black communities, such as Africville, the government policies that destroyed these once thriving settlements, and the residents’ resistance to systemic displacement.

The event is free, but registration is required. To attend the event, please register at
