Black History Month in Canada… Marie-Josephe Angelique

February is Black History Month in both the U.S. and Canada. I have long been a student of black history in our own nation, but have, quite honestly, never studied the same in Canadian history. Since starting this blog a few years ago, I have made many wonderful friends in Canada, one of whom is author John Fioravanti. John is a former educator and an excellent writer, and he is writing a daily post highlighting a person or event from Canadian Black History Month. I thought it would be fun to learn some new things this month, about the history of our northern neighbors, so I am starting tonight by re-blogging John’s most recent post about a young woman, Marie-Josephe Angelique. Please take a moment to read John’s post, as it is a tragic, but fascinating tale. I am planning to share more of John’s stories this month, and I’m trying to talk him into writing a guest post, also. Thank you so much, John, for allowing me to share your excellent work!
