FEBRUARY IS AFRICAN HERITAGE MONTH: Let’s Pass the Torch

Notable African Nova Scotian, Carrie Best, was born in New Glasgow on March 4, 1903.  Even though the odds were stacked against her as a black woman born just after the turn of the 20th century, Best stated that from the beginning she felt a sense of dignity and self-worth.  This would be the foreshadowing of the woman she would become.  In her 97 years of living, she would defy the odds to become a poet, author, journalist and tenacious crusader.  Those efforts as a writer and human rights activist have earned her a place in Nova Scotia and Canadian history.
