Summary
"Thousands of black people sought refuge in Canada before the U.S. Civil War. While most encountered some racism among Canadian citizens, many thrived under the Canadian government. The book begins with a short historical account of blacks in Canada from 1629 until the early 1800s, when the first groups of escaped slaves began to enter the country"--Provided by publisher
