African peoples have lived in Canada since the beginnings of transatlantic settlement. Although their migration, settlement and life in Canada has been saturated with prejudice and brutality, their legacy is one of courage and strength. Prof. James Walker from the University of Waterloo joins us to discuss this fascinating chapter in Canadian history.
