As her story opens, Beratrice is sixteen and freshly returned from a convent school where she was sent 'to copy white ladies ways'.

"Nova Scotia is the cradle of an African Canadian community that has existed for more than 200 years. During that time, black Nova Scotians have shared triumphs and tragedies similar to those of other communities of colour in North America, yet they have also developed a culture that is unique.

The last ten years have been eventful for Bluenose blacks. The province has seen the election of the first black menber of the legislature, the first black judge as wel as a revival of music, art and writing. there have been successful anti-racism programs and affirmative action in school and on the job.

But there have beeen upheavals and setbacks as well, including racial fights at high schools, violence in the streets, high unemployment and continued inequality along with the continued outrage over the forced relocation of the residents of Africville.

Black and Bluenose documents the recent history of Canada's oldest and largest indigenous black community. Saunders writes with passion and insight about issues that are close to his heart and an understanding of the historical forces that shape the headlines of today." - from the rear cover.

George H. Junne, Jr, The History of Blacks in Canada : A Selectively Annotated Bibliography 1340.

George Elliott Clarke, OC ONS (b. February 12, 1960, Windsor, Nova Scotia) a Canadian poet, novelist and playwright, currently serving as the Canadian Parliamentary Poet Laureate.

"Mixing prose, poetry, and drama, and including the work of established writers and new voices, writing in English as well as French (in translation here), Eyeing the North Star is a varied and vibrant overview of the recent evolution of African-Canadian Literature." - from rear.

"These writers avoid nothing. They speak the raw blues of truth, no matter how raucous, hideous, odious, bitter, or sore. They talk about everything that is loud, ugly, irrepressible. They talk about incest, self-hatred, alienation, and the wintry coldeness of modernity and its vituperative capitalism. They remember original homes of love and warmth, even as they build new homes amid a cool hostility. They remember the seductive winters, the abbreviated summers. They have cursed the slate-grey, murderous Atlantic and wept out love in paradisal Grenada. They have stumbled across plains and across veldts. They have cut sugarcane, they have cut down dictators. They have made a fête of fate. Their poems on roses descend from their poems on corrosion." - from Clarke's Introduction.

Both repelled and intrigued by his ancestral cousins' deeds, which he learned about from his own mother shortly before her death, Clark set out tolearn what forces would reduce men to crime, violence, and, ultimately, mu rder." - from the dj.

20 CLARKE, George Elliott Odysseys Home : Mapping African-Canadian Literature
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 2002, ISBN:0802043793 
CLARKE, George Elliott. Odysseys Home : Mapping African-Canadian Literature. Toronto: University of Toronto Press, (2002). Pp. 491. Large 8vo, red ill. card covers. "Odysseys Home: Mapping African-Canadian Literature is a pioneering study of African-Canadian literary creativity, laying the groundwork for future scholarly work in the field. Based on extensive excavations ofarchives and texts, this challenging passage through twelve essays present s a history of the literature and examines its debt to, and synthesis with,oral cultures. George Elliott Clarke identifies African-Canadian literatur e's distinguishing characteristics, argues for its relevance to both African Diasporic Black and Canadian Studies, and critiques several of its key creators and texts. Scholarly and sophisticated, the survey cites and interprets the works of several major African-Canadian writers, including AndrT Alexis, Dionne Brand, Austin Clarke, Claire Harris, and M. Nourbese Philip. In so doing, Clarke demonstrates that African-Canadian writers and critics explore the tensions that exist between notions of universalism and black nationalism, liberalism and conservatism. These tensions are revealed in the literature in what Clarke argues to be - paradoxically - uniquely Canadian and proudly apart from a mainstream national identity." - from the introductory blurb.
