     Posted on Saturday, July 31 @ 00:00:07 PDT

    [ad_1] The African Nova Scotian flag flies in Halifax, N.S., ahead of Emancipation Day this Sunday. (Robert Short/CBC) As Nova Scotia prepares to mark Emancipation Day on Aug. 1, Mainstreet NS is offering special programming to celebrate, educate and reflect on what the day means. With host Jeff Douglas, a series of seven podcast episodes puts context around the day and offers insight into what came before emancipation — namely slavery. According to the Nova Scotia Archives, most Black people arriving in Nova Scotia between 1749 and 1782 were enslaved people brought by English or American settlers. Of the nearly 3,000 people living in Halifax in 1750, there were about 400 enslaved and 17 free Black people.
