When slavery was abolished throughout the British Empire, effective August 1, 1834, people of African descent celebrated their newfound freedom and former slaves could live unfettered lives in Canada. This well-researched book provides insight into a distinct African-Canadian tradition through descriptive historical accounts and appealing images.
