Lynn Jones African-Canadian and Diaspora Heritage Collection


Fonds consists of material relating to the life and accomplishments of Lynn Jones, as well as material collected by her over the years documenting over 50 years of African, African Diasporic and African-Nova Scotian heritage and history. The Collection is divided into seven series, some of which focus on Lynn's family (including a series on her brother Rocky), others document her own achievements (including material relating to Lynn's candidacy for the NDP in 1993, her union service, and her trip to South Africa in 1994 as an election observer). One series also documents her career with the Canadian Public Service, and, especially, her involvement with the Black Working Group (an advisory group set up to advise Human Resources and Development Canada on how to work with the African-Canadian community). In addition to Lynn's own achievements, the Collection documents local, national, and international issues through a substantive collection of news clippings, pamphlets, brochures, posters, and other documents. These document local communities (especially in Truro, Nova Scotia), local events, racism locally, nationally, and internationally, and many other topics.
