$26.20

Trade Paperback. Non-fiction/History/Philosophy/Hamilton. Goose Lane Editions, 2022. (Price includes GST) It Was Dark There all the Time/Andrew Hunter
“Sophia Burthen’s account of her arrival as an enslaved person into what is now Canada sometime in the late 18th century, was recorded by Benjamin Drew in 1855. In It Was Dark There All the Time, writer and curator Andrew Hunter builds on the testimony of Drew’s interview to piece together Burthen’s life, while reckoning with the legacy of whiteness and colonialism in the recording of her story. In so doing, Hunter demonstrates the role that the slave trade played in pre-Confederation Canada and its continuing impact on contemporary Canadian society.” (From publisher website)
