  • If you watched or read The Book of Negroes the award-winning novel from Canadian writer Lawrence Hill then you must visit the Black Loyalist Heritage Centre. In the late 18th century, Birchtown was the largest free Black community in British North America. It was the centre of the Black Loyalist experience and its founding represented a turning point in the history of persons of African descent in Canada. The Black Loyalist Heritage Site, located in Birchtown on Nova Scotia’s South Shore, shares the story of the Black Loyalists – some of the earliest Black settlers in Nova Scotia.
