Press release: The Black Lives Matter Solidarity Fund NS (Fund) has partnered with Black community organizations to distribute over $200,000 to support community projects, large and small, in rural and metropolitan areas throughout the province.
Tina Renier on what makes initiatives like The Black Lives Matter Community Solidarity Fund so powerful. “What has kept us together as African peoples, especially throughout centuries of trauma from slavery, colonialism and racial capitalism, was our spirit.”
After a difficult start, a fundraising effort to provide relief to African Nova Scotians hit hard by the coronavirus is back on track and distributing much needed cash to people in need. We talk with Dr. Lynn Jones, one of the four community organizers behind the fund.
