A must-read. There are harrowing accounts of the amazingly brilliant and heroic individual refugees who successfully beat slavery by risking their lives to cross the border - with the help of many committed people - into Canada. This short volume also tells the story of how Toronto evolved to become a haven of tolerance and acceptance in the new world. Foibles? Heck, yeah. But always striving to make room for the next wave of immigrants.

It was super amazing as a Black woman who was born and raised in Toronto to learn about Black Torontonians contributions to the city and to also learn their stories. Thank you to the authors for writing this book I\m forever grateful to y'all!
