    Emancipation Day
    Emancipation Day
    Celebrating Freedom in Canada
    When the passage of the Abolition of Slavery Act, effective August 1, 1834, ushered in the end of slavery throughout the British Empire, people of the African descent celebrated their newfound freedom. Now African-American fugitive slaves, free black immigrants, and the few remaining enslaved Africans could live unfettered live in Canada - a reality worthy of celebration. This new, well-researched book provides insight into the creation, development, and evolution of a distinct African-Canadian tradition through descriptive historical accounts and appealing images. The social, cultural, political, and educational practices of Emanipation Day festivities across Canada are explored, with emphasis on Ontario, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, and British Columbia. ''''Emancipation is not only a word in the dictionary, but an action to liberate one's destiny. This outstanding book is superb in the interpretation of ''''the power of freedom'''' in one's heart and mind - moving from 1834 to present.'''' - Dr. Henry Bishop, Black Cultural Centre, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia
