Disaffected with increasingly repressive laws that aimed to curtail their hard-won freedom, a courageous group of blacks in California left the state in the 1850s and settled in western Canada, notably on Salt Spring Island. Today, direct descendants of the early black pioneers still reside in the pastoral landscape also hailed as one of the top artist colonies in North America.
In recent years, people of African descent from the U.S., the Caribbean, Africa, Europe, the South Pacific Islands, and other regions of Canada have settled on Salt Spring inspiring a renaissance in the island's black heritage. Resplendent with archival and contemporary photos, Every Goodbye Ain't Gone documents the intriguing racial history of Salt Spring and, as such, serves as a celebration of the multicultural roots of Canada.
