    Celebrating the class of 2020

    Celebrating the class of 2020

    This is definitely not the graduation year anyone in the class of 2020 dreamed of.

    Just when they thought their learning was done, the global coronavirus pandemic forced graduates to learn new lessons — and maybe even rethink their future. But some students are reaching for positivity, finding silver linings, and celebrating their accomplishments during this unprecedented moment.

    So on this Now or Never, we are celebrating this year's graduates and the people who helped them make it through.

    North Preston, Nova Scotia

    North Preston, Nova Scotia

    The conversations around anti-Black racism in Canada and around the world have made us think about North Preston, Nova Scotia.

    It's the largest and oldest black community in the country — a place where history runs deep, and where people are fighting passionately for their future. And it's a place we visited a few years back.

    A man opens up about his criminal past, and how the thought of losing his family — and the future of his town — changed his life.

    A woman opens her heart, and her home, by turning her basement into an unofficial drop-in hub for youth in North Preston.

    A group of elders work hard to keep the long tradition of making and selling Christmas wreaths alive.

    And more stories from this small but mighty community that is fighting to define itself.

    How to slow down

    How to slow down

    Even now, with many of us stuck at home, carving out the time or finding the energy to slow down can feel impossible.

    And then, when you do, what does taking a break even look like? How do you silence the voice that just keeps nagging you about all the things you need to do?

    On this Now or Never we are doing our best to quiet that voice, and pressing the pause button with Canadians who are finding creative ways to slow down. And when you do slow down, what do you learn about yourself in the process?
