African Canadian History
This introductory course begins in the seventeenth century with an examination of the presence of free and enslaved Africans in New France and the British colonies. The course then explores the structures of African Canadian communities, institutions, and abolition movements. The twentieth-century themes of the course include African Canadians' contributions to the emerging Canadian nation, the impact of Black Power, as well as the concerns of the 'new newcomers' from Africa, America, and the Caribbean.
