"This is an absolutely incredible resource. I have never seen anything like this done on of this scale and execution from outside our community."

Louis March, Director, African Canadian Heritage Association

"When we ask ourselves how to bring the rich yet underrepresented story of African-Canadian heritage to life for our youth, The Book of Negroes is a natural centrepiece. The Historica-Dominion Institute's new Black History in Canada Education Guide, a classroom resource for high school students, harnesses this educational potential in an exciting new way. The Guide draws on the rich narrative, history and archives found in The Book of Negroes to bring Black history alive in classrooms across Canada. When I was in high school, it would have been fantastic to have the Black History in Canada Educational Guide as part of a learning tool to understand more not only about my history as a Canadian, but our collective history."
