Summary
Told through manuscripts, letters and dramatic reconstructions, this is the story of the incredible exodus of thousands of African-Americans to Canada in the 1850's. Elise Harding-Davis, Curator at the North American Black Historical Museum, and Dr. Afua Cooper, author and historian, are among the experts providing perspective. Based largely on the journal of Henry Bibb. Henry was to become the first former slave to publish a newspaper in Canada
