dc.description.abstract This thesis explores the lived experiences of African Nova Scotian youth and their memories of growing up in three neighbourhoods in Truro, Nova Scotia in the 1950s and 1960s. Five male and five female African Nova Scotians who were between thirteen and nineteen years of age in the 1950s and 1960s were interviewed about their experiences of community, education, religion, dating, popular culture, music, and racism. Their stories surrounding the six topics highlight memories of sorrow, joy, hardship, and resilience, shared to preserve the missing history of rural Black youth experience in Truro, Nova Scotia. Collectively, their stories revealed a distinct Black youth culture and an education system that both implicitly and explicitly discouraged their progress. en_US
