When I was in school Canadian history covered famous explorers, soldiers, and politicians mostly of French or British nationality. It did not include Canadian Black history. Thankfully there are people like Elise Harding-Davis in this world to help fix this. A past curator of the Black History Museum in Amherstburg and a leading authority on African Canadian history, Elise's passion for history and her people drives her to make sure we understand and acknowledge the part African Canadians had in shaping Canada. Black men and women came to Canada for freedom and along the way helped build this country, fought for this country and died for this country. By protecting their cemeteries and sharing her knowledge with future generations Elise is making sure we do not forget them.

The Black Presence in the War of 1812: Unsung Military Volunteers of North America by Elise Harding-Davis
