To this day, Black families of Africville remember the razing . Even though this event took place over four decades ago, memorials, organizations, societies, stories, art works and more have sprung up as a result of this destruction. To me this demonstrates the intense will to survive as a community, found among Black Nova Scotians and is worthy of the highest praise. The presence of such people from the earliest time is one of the things that makes Canada a great country. Let's hope she can appreciate these illustrious founding citizens.
