Atlantic Canada and ‘the End of History”: Postmodernism and Regional Underdevelopment

“Since the early 1800s, Nova Scotia has also had a black minority of 3-4% of the population, a racially distinguishable “lumpenproletariat” frequently physically segregated from white society. Although sociological studies have suggested that black marginalization and disunity are purely “cultural,” the history of Africville and the peculiar spatial development of Halifax and Dartmouth calls attention to race as an instrument of “class war” (Clainnont).”
