Members of federal Black Caucus will visit Truro next week

Members of the federal Black Caucus are expected to make an historic visit to Truro next week.

Bill Casey, the MP for Cumberland-Colchester, says he is thrilled that the Members of Parliament who formed a Black Caucus in Ottawa earlier this year have agreed to visit Truro on April 25th. 

Casey says the focus of the tour will be on inspiring young people to strive, but it will also shed light on African Nova Scotian history and tackle the issue of racism. 

The Members of Parliament who are expected to appear include Greg Fergus, Marc Miller, Celina Caesar-Chavannes, and Senator Wanda Thomas Bernard of East Preston will also be in attendance. 

Casey says the main events will include a lunch with the Black Caucus at the Holiday Inn, and an evening of conversation at the Marigold Cultural Centre, in Truro. 

The events are open to the public.
