Freedom in Print: Books and Antislavery History at the Chatham-Kent Black Mecca Museum

UPDATE! The map and database of Chatham-connected books and authors will be published soon, with new material from student researchers at Huron University College and the University of Guelph.  Check here for the map link, coming in June 2024, or check the CKBHS website!

On October 12, 2023 we launched the Freedom in Print project, which documents the world-changing intellectual activism of Black authors, printers, editors, and readers in 19th-century Chatham-Kent. Click here to see the program of events.

Freedom in Print is supported by a Partnership Engage Grant from the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada, and by Huron University College, the Chatham-Kent Black Historical Society, the University of Guelph, the Huron Community History Centre, and the Municipality of Chatham-Kent.
