Africville: Canít Stop Now airs on CBC

Halifax Herald: ARTS IN BRIEF
Sat. Jul 25

Forty years after the residents of Africville were forced out of their Halifax neighbourhood, their descendants are still seeking a resolution.

The documentary Africville: Can’t Stop Now, which will air on CBC TV tonight at 10 p.m., focuses on three men: Eddie, Irvine and Nelson Carvery.

Each deals with the loss of their community in a different way.

Eddie continues his almost half-century protest at Seaview Park where Africville once stood. His brother Irvine is working to have the community’s church rebuilt. Their cousin Nelson is focused on keeping people hopeful and moving forward.

Africville: Can’t Stop Now produced by Marty Williams and directed by Juanita Peters.
