Sep 25, 2013 Chris rated it it was amazing
Fascinating story told with lively, engaging writing. We get some of the history of Africville and the Carveries and civil rights and colonial planning through one very engaging man with an astounding life story.

My favourite quotation from the book:

"...integration always seemed to go one way, with Black people having to integrate into the white people's world."
