“Africadia”: Black Loyalists and Beyond

The South Shore region of Nova Scotia contained the largest settlement of Black Loyalists. Birchtown is the most famous of these settlements, but Black loyalists settled all over the province. The Black Loyalists were not the first Blacks to arrive in Nova Scotia as Black guides accompanied the Dutch and French explorers in the early seventeenth century. Blacks also arrived in Nova Scotia as part of the French settlement of places like Louisburg. On the South Shore the first permanently residing Blacks accompanied the Planter migration that scatter the Nova Scotian coast.
