Broaden your understanding of Canadian history through this revealing conversation with Andrew Hunter and Brian Martin. Hunter’s It was Dark There All the Time reveals the role that pre-confederation Canada played in the North American slave trade in sharing Sophia Burthen’s account of her arrival to a Canada as an enslaved person, as recorded by Benjamin Drew in 1855. The powerful and shocking story exposes Canada’s legacy of whiteness and colonialism, and demonstrates its continuing impact on Canadian society today. Filled with engaging stories and astonishing facts, Martin’s From Underground Railroad to Rebel Refuge: Canada and the Civil War examines the role of Canadians during the bloody battle. The award-winning journalist’s research sheds light on the 20,000 Canadians who went south to take up arms on both sides of the conflict, and the enslaved people, draft dodgers, deserters and more who fled north. From the origins of the KKK, to abolishment and the establishment of Ontario communities during the Reconstruction Era, get ready to challenge the Canada you thought you knew.

Moderated by Stephen Dorsey.
