Illustration #2-5: Canada images: Baquaqua, Clapperton, Perkins, Tubman

In the first set of images, No. 2-5, Canada is a window that allows us to follow individuals who have connections into slavery and the African diaspora, the reformer, the novelist, and the victims, each of whom had his or her own response to slavery and all of whom are part of the story of resistance. By coincidence and without ever knowing, they had a relationship with Upper Canada that can be useful in informing our views of slavery and resistance to slavery.
