"A richly illustrated book, (which) examines the urban connection of the clan destine system of secret routes, safe houses and 'conductors'. Not only does it trace the story of the Underground Railroad itself and how people courageously made the trip north to Canada and freedom, but it explores what happened to them af t e r t h ey arrived. And it does so using never-before-published information on the African-Canadian community of Toronto. Based entirely on new research carried out for the experiential theatre show 'The Underground Railroad: Next Stop, Freedom !' a t t he R oyal Ontario Museum, this volume offers new insights into the rich heritage of the Black people who made Toronto their home before the Civil War. It portrays life in the city during the nineteenth century from the time of slavery, w hen so me o f T oro nto's white citizens owned slaves, and looks at the world of mid-century Black Torontonians in considerable detail. This exciting new book will be of interest to readers young and old who want to learn more about this unexplor ed c hapt er in Toro nto' s history."
