This recording contains only the recessional of this special convocation ceremony.
This ceremony fell on the 125 anniversary of the University and was intended to celebrate the university's role in the community. This convocation was performed solely to honour Rosa Parks, who was awarded the Honourary Degree of Doctor of Humane Letters (D.H.L.). Parks’ visit was in conjunction with Pathways to Freedom, a program of the Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self-Development. Pathways to Freedom is a program that follows the Underground Railroad and the Sixties freedom bus routes through the United States into Canada. 1998 was the first time Nova Scotia hosted the event – on the Mount Saint Vincent Campus.
