The title of Faith Nolan's historical album refers to the 150 year old black settlement, which was located in the Bedford Basin in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Rather than providing the community with fresh water, septic systems, roads, and other facilities that were afforded the caucasion communities, the racist government of the day stole their land, ordered the destruction of the community, and displaced all 400 inhabitants.

Residents of Africville were given a formal apology by the mayor of Halifax in February, 2010.
