'The Halifax Explosion' is a poem written by Halifax's seventh poet laureate, Dr. Afua Cooper. It reveals dramatically what happened on 6 December 1917 at 9:05 when two ships carrying munitions and war supplies collided in the Halifax Harbour. It also shows the personal heroic actions of many African Nova Scotians, despite the long-term and continuing racism and discrimination suffered by the African Nova Scotian community. And it asks a powerful question ... does Halifax remember?
