The African Canadian Legal Odyssey explores the history of African Canadians and the law from the era of slavery until the early twenty-first century. This collection demonstrates that the social history of Blacks in Canada has always been inextricably bound to questions of law, and that the role of the law in shaping Black life was often ambiguous and shifted over time.
Comprised of eleven engaging chapters, organized both thematically and chronologically, it includes a substantive introduction that provides a synthesis and overview of this complex history. This outstanding collection will appeal to both advanced specialists and undergraduate students and makes an important contribution to an emerging field of scholarly inquiry.

Barrington Walker is an associate professor in the Department of History at Queen's University.Review:
‘The African Canadian Legal Odyssey makes an important contribution to scholarship in African Canadian legal history. It not only brings new material to light and casts new light on familiar material, but it also expands and reconfigures the parameters of the field. I look forward to teaching this collection in African Canadian history classes.’ (Nina Reid-Maroney, Department of History, Western University)
