"This book reflects a few of the Black women, the Unsung Black Heroinein Nova Scotia, past and present. These women tell about their untiring wo rks and their dedication, commitment, love of families and communities. Their Biographies tell you a small portion of what they contributed to the communities in which they lived and beyond Many of these women were strugglinglong before the word feminist was even thought of. Black women have always been involved; we had to in order to survive. Black Women in Nova Scotia h ave been working and volunteering their time since the early 1800s. These stories have not been told, they are not in our history books. Black women have been, and always will be, the backbones of their families along with the Black Men. Black Women have flourished and demanded their rightful place in our Societies but not without a struggle. We have fought and continue tofight the isms, Racism, Sexism and many others. We have the right to be co unted in all aspects of society, whether it is through employment, Boards and Commissions, Politics and many other areas." - from rear cover.
