Review

"Anti-Black Racism in Canada: A Historical Perspective" provides the early background and history of the Africa Canadian community in Canada and their settlement in different parts of Canada, their journey from slavery in America, the Underground Railroad, the settlement of Black Loyalists in Nova Scotia, their arrival in Canada after the American Civil War in the 1860's, and the waves of immigration following the World Wars. Anti-Black racism has been a constant challenge for the Black population in Canada and contemporary forms of racism continue to surface. Racial profiling is particularly detrimental to the Black population in Canada.
