African Heritage Month 2017 Poster Request Form

Complete List of 2017 African Heritage Month Events

The African Heritage Month Information Network (AHMIN) is pleased to share information on 2017 African Heritage Month.

This year’s African Heritage Month theme, Passing the Torch…African Nova Scotians and the next 150 years, will honour past and present legacies of African Nova Scotians while looking forward to future greatness.  The theme embraces African Nova Scotians’ resilience in the face of adversity over the generations as it highlights their successes and the bright path forward as Canada celebrates 150 years of confederation.

The province of Nova Scotia has over 50 historic African Nova Scotian communities, dating back over 200 years.  Annually we celebrate the history, heritage and contributions of African Nova Scotians during the month of February and beyond.  Our 2017 theme also aligns with the global observance of the United Nations International Decade for People of African Descent from 2015-2024 which focuses on three pillars: Recognition, Justice, and Development.

Please note that we will be taking requests for posters and will be starting distribution on January 24th 2017 and throughout the month of February. For requests of multiple posters, a minimal shipping charge may be required. All requests are now being processed on a first come, first served basis as we will have a limited supply.
