Colonial Canada had slavery, too
Dr. Afua Cooper, the James Robinson Johnston Chair in Black Canadian Studies and Associate Professor in SOSA, was interviewed by Joshua Ostroff for the Huffington Post (Canadian edition) for an article on slavery in colonial Canada. Dr. Cooper cautions against the celebratory narrative of events used to mark the 150th anniversary of Canada's Confederation this year. "Slavery was the dominant condition of life for black people in this country for well over 200 years," she says in the article. "So we have been enslaved for longer than we have been free."
