The three major anchors that describe the Museum's public programming may be defined as the African Diaspora, which recognizes the gifts, lineage and the unique cultural expressions that people of African ancestry share throughout the Americas and the world; The Halifax Story, which celebrates local and regional cultural achievements while enlightening our audience about the thirst for freedom and liberty shared by past generations; and The Contemporary Narrative, which relates current events, and focuses on our ever-changing universe. A unifying thread connects the Museum's anchors: each utilizes sound museum practices as an approach to researching and interpreting culture, enabling the Museum to integrate our collections with engaging learning experiences that provoke curiosity and deepen understanding of the human experience.
