Secular, Scarred and Sacred : Education and Religion Among the Black Community in Nineteenth-Century Canada, Hardback Book

Secular, Scarred and Sacred : Education and Religion Among the Black Community in Nineteenth-Century Canada Hardback

Description

Secular, Scarred and Sacred: Education and Religion Among the Black Community in Nineteenth-Century Canada focuses on the paternal yet exclusionary role of Protestant Whites and their churches among refugee slaves and free Blacks in nineteenth-century Upper Canada-many of whom had migrated to Canada to escape the dreaded system of slavery in the United States.

This book contends that White Protestant churches provided organizational, social and theological models among Black communities in Canada.

Author Jerome Teelucksingh further explores how Black migrants seized the educational opportunities offered by churches and schools to both advance academically and pursue an ideal of virtuous citizenship that equipped them for new social challenges.
