Product description


"Williams' readable analysis provides a solid portrait of Montreal's black community... [It] could serve as a comparative study to the black experience in other major Canadian cities... an excellent piece of local historical research." --Canadian Social Studies

"[A] well-researched account... In the preface to her book, Dorothy W. Williams offers the reader her 'effort to describe the many facets of black presence in Montreal.' She has achieved her aim admirably well." --Montreal Serai
