BOOK - African Hope Renewed, Along the Grand River (1400's-1800's)
By Angela E. M. Files

African Hope Renewed Along the Grand River 1400-1800s is a compendium of African settlement in the five counties along the Grand River in Ontario. The Grand River is a large river in southwestern Ontario. From its source, it flows south through Grand Valley, Fergus, Elora, Waterloo, Kitchener, Cambridge, Paris, Brantford, Caledonia, and Cayuga before emptying into the north shore of Lake Erie south of Dunnville at Port Maitland. The Grand River is the largest river entirely within southern Ontario's boundaries. The Grand Valley Trail stretches 275 km along the river's valley between the town of Alton and Lake Erie.

Starting with the story of slavery in West Africa in the 1400s, it also covers slavery in the West Indies and colonial America, and freedom in Canada with the arrival of black refugees in Ontario on the underground railway system.

"My purpose for writing was to preserve some of this history along the Grand River," says authur Angela E. M. Files. The 136-page book was produced with financial assistance from the Ontario Trillium Foundation and it has full-colour and black-and-white maps and photos.
