AMHERST - A new multi-generational groundbreaking exhibit will be featured at the Cumberland County Museum during the month of February, which is African Heritage Month in the International Year for People of African Descent.

The traveling exhibit, entitled "Caribbean Canadian Connection - We've Come This Far By Faith" was created by Cumberland County artist Darlene Strong, proprietor of Maria's Health and Wellness Clinic.

The 10-panel didactic exhibit walks an audience through 400 years of African-Canadian history with vivid artwork that evokes thought and stimulates dialogue.
