A Black History Month Announcement:
Biblioasis is proud to announce that this fall we will publish The Long Road Continues (Oct 23, 2018) by Irene Moore Davis, a transnational history of the movement and lives of Black populations across the US/Canada borders with a special focus on our beloved Windsor/Detroit. This groundbreaking book — part oral-history interviews, part survey history — takes a comprehensive look at a complex and multifaceted community. The book included highlights such as the modern-day arrival of Caribbean immigrants and Windsor’s annual Emancipation Day celebrations, which grew to be one of the largest of the day’s celebrations in North America, drawing visitors from all over the United States including Martin Luther King, Jr and Eleanor Roosevelt.
Sure to be a landmark book of history in both Canada and the US, watch for The Long Road Continues, to be released October 16!
