Leading with Love

  • In this talk Tyler speaks about the importance of love and how powerful it can be in moving us toward positive change. With all of the injustice, racism, and hatred we have witnessed over the past few years, as well as long before that, the black community and many others have experienced an incredible amount of trauma and pain.

    How do we hold the individuals who have contributed to this harm accountable? Tyler believes the most productive way is through compassion. This could help disrupt the maintaining cycle of pain and trauma that so many are experiencing.

Africaville - Canadian History & BLM

  •  Africaville was a small community of predominantly Black Canadians located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. It developed on the southern shore of Bedford Basin and existed from the early 1800s to the 1960s. From 1970 to the present, a protest has occupied space on the grounds. The community has become an important symbol of Black Canadian identity, as an example of the “urban renewal” trend of the 1960s that razed similarly racialized neighbourhoods across Canada, and the struggle against racism.

    During the 20th century, Halifax neglected the community, failing to provide basic infrastructure and services such as roads, water, and sewerage. The city continued to use the area as an industrial site, and mental health hospital, expanding the railroad to run through the center of the community and notably introducing a waste-treatment facility nearby in 1958.

    The residents of Africaville struggled with poverty and poor health conditions as a result, and the community’s buildings became badly deteriorated. During the late 1960s, the City of Halifax condemned the area, relocating its residents to newer housing in order to develop the nearby A. Murray MacKay Bridge, related highway construction, and the Port of Halifax facilities at Fairview Cove to the west. Soon after this, former residents and activists began a long protest on the site against their treatment and the condemnation.

    In 1996 the site was designated as a National Historic Site of Canada as being representative of Black Canadian settlements in the province and as an enduring symbol of the need for vigilance in defence of their communities and institutions. After years of protest and investigations, in 2010 the Halifax Council ratified a proposed “Africaville Apology”, under an arrangement with the federal government, to compensate descendants and their families who had been evicted from the area. In addition, an Africaville Heritage Trust was established to design a museum and build a replica of the community church.

    How do we hold the individuals who have contributed to this harm accountable? Tyler believes the most productive way is through compassion. This could help disrupt the maintaining cycle of pain and trauma that so many are experiencing through years of systematic oppression. Social injustices, and racism have been normalized through political and social narratives, which has ultimately continued to maintain oppression within the black community, similar to what has transpired in First Nation communities across the nation.

    As a result, so many Canadians have experienced and continue to experience an incredible amount of trauma and pain. Tyler shares his family’s history in Halifax and the problems Black Canadians still face in the city. He shares the importance and the power of compassion and how it should be at the forefront of all political, social and family conversations, which would help all move forward towards a positive change for ourselves, our relationships and our nation.
