The Black Battalion: 1916-1920 : Canada's Best Kept Military Secret

Front Cover
Nimbus Pub., 1987 - History - 125 pages
0 Reviews
Black military heritage in Canada is still generally unknown and unwritten. Most Canadians have no idea that Blacks served, fought, and died on European battlefields, all in the name of freedom. The story of the overt racist treatment of Black volunteers is a shameful chapter in Canadian history. It does, however, represent an important part of the Black legacy and the Black experience. It is a story worth reporting and worth sharing.
