Recommended Read: The Freedom-Seekers


To continue the celebration of Black History Month, we are recommending The Freedom-Seekers: Blacks in early Canada by Daniel G. Hill

From the publisher: “Black Loyalists and their families were among the first settlers in Nova Scotia and Upper Canada. As abolitiion movements and the Underground Railroad gained support, Black slaves and refugees flooded into Canada determined to build new lives for themselves and their children. The Freedom-Seekers chronicles the phenomenal success story of their struggle to break the chains of slavery and gain the full rights of citizenship in their adopted country.”
