Ontario's African-Canadian Heritage PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Ontario's African-Canadian Heritage free pdf "Ontario's African-Canadian Heritage" is composed of the collected works of Professor Fred Landon, who for over 60 years wrote about African-Canadian history. The selected articles have, for the most part, never been surpassed by more recent research and offer a wealth of data on slavery, abolition, the Underground Railroad, and more, providing unique insights into the abundance of African-Canadian heritage in Ontario. Though much of Landon's research was published in the Ontario Historical Society's journal, "Ontario History", some of the articles reproduced here appeared in such prestigious U.S. publications as the "Journal of Negro History". This volume, illustrated and extensively annotated, includes research by the editors into the life of Fred Landon. It is the Legacy Project for the Bicentennial of the Abolition of the Atlantic Slave Trade, an initiative of the OHS, funded by a 'Roots of Freedom' grant received from the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration.
