WHAT

This year, we mark the hundredth anniversary of the start of the First World War. Beginning on Remembrance Day, the Black Museum will present “Remembering Local Heroes: Black Involvement in the First World War”, a temporary exhibit highlighting ongoing research.

Visit the Museum’s second floor to learn more about the No. 2 Construction Battalion, the all Black unit created in 1916 with headquarters in Pictou, NS.

The research on display will focus on local African Canadian enlistees (ranging from Windsor-London, Ontario).

Visit us between November 11th and December 14th to view the exhibit and learn more about this important story. This is a temporary exhibit, so make sure you don’t miss it! Exhibit is included with the purchase of regular admission to the Museum.
