Tales of Humanity and Hardship:
An Examination of Early Black Migration in Waterloo-Wellington Counties
Long neglected in local history accounts, Joanna examines relatively unknown stories and community contributions of early black settlers and provides us with a rare insight into the plight of refugee slaves as they forged their way into the unknown in order to build a better life for themselves and their families. Leaving the chains of slavery behind, some were better received than others but, as you will discover, all were determined to succeed.
