The United African Canadian Women’s Association (UACWA), in collaboration with African Nova Scotia Affairs (ANSA), is calling on all  Black Organizations to be part of a Grand Emancipation Parade on August 14th 2021 to Commemorate and Honour “The Struggles for Freedom Black People Experienced in the past……”

Our Theme – Understanding our Past and Uplifting our Future.

The parade, which will be a colourful procession of different Black  organizations and groups, will start at the Queen’s Landing Wharf (The  Waterfront), at 11am, proceed to the Province House, and then to the Grand Parade for a 1-hour event of speeches, poems, drumming, and  recitals. We will be having an after-parade picnic at the North Commons grounds between 1:00pm and 4:00pm. Food and Drinks will be provided.
