Description

Share and Care: The Story of the Nova Scotia Home for Colored Children is a microcosm of black Nova Scotia history. Founded nearly one hundred years ago to address the needs of neglected and unwanted children in the black community, the home has become a monument to the self-reliance and solidarity that has long defined black culture in Nova Scotia.

With meticulous care, author Charles R. Saunders recreates the day-to-day life of the home and acquaints us with its devotees, the people who founded it, nurtured it, and found refuge in it. Behind the accounts, one senses the spirit of the struggles and challenges faced by the home’s supporters, determined people whose inner strength proved equal to the task of sharing and caring for each other.

The text is generously illustrated with photographs and enriched by poetry—written especially for the book—of George Elliott Clarke.
