My guest today is Chantal Richard, a professor at UNB’s French Department. She also worked on the new Acadian exhibit at the Fredericton Region Museum. She joins me to talk about a general outline of Acadian history, how the expulsion affected their culture, and how the modern Acadian spirit is alive and loud.
How much do you think you know about New Brunswick history? Personally, I think we do a pretty bad job of teaching it, and most people don’t embrace it. I’m on a mission to learn more, so I’ve invited a collection of historians to help me learn more about the legacies, the achievements, the battles, the inventions, the troublesome eras and the long past of one of Canada’s oldest regions.
