Watch Informative, Inspiring Documentary Short 'From the Heart of Black Nova Scotia'

Directed by Sylvia Hamilton, the below 30-minute film takes a look at the lives of a group of black students in their predominantly white high school in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and the daily reminders of racism they face, ranging from abuse, to exclusion.

They work to establish a Cultural Awareness Youth Group, a vehicle for building pride and self-esteem through educational and cultural programs. With help from mentors, they discover the richness of their heritage and learn some of the ways they can begin to affect change.

The documentary is a few years old, but still very much worth a look, for your information:

I knew that racism existed in Canada and I do hope that its better today. They should show this short on PBS or something. Very informative.
