Black History Month Reading/History Lesson Google Slides Grades 4-6
Canadian history books fail to mention the presence of people of African descent even though they have been living in Canada since the early 1600s. There is little mention of the fact that slavery once existed in the territory that is now Canada. Many of the Loyalists who settled in the Maritimes were black. Black Canadian soldiers made many sacrifices while defending Canada during wartime as far back as the War of 1812.
