At the time the population of Canada West was just short of a million and about 30,000 black people lived in the colony, most of whom were escaped slaves from south of the border.

It is an invaluable record of early black Canadian experience.… (mere)

It is remarkable how similar these narratives are to the ones collected 75 years later by the Library of Congress when they sent college graduates into the South to interview elderly former slaves as a make work project during the Depression. The inhumanity of man to fellow man is unnerving and especially so when the slave owner is a minister of a church. For a sample of the remembrances of the elderly;y black men & women collected in the 1930's, find a copy of "My Folks Don't Want Me to Talk About Slavery". They tell the sames stories as those you will read in this 1856 collection. ( )
