From Slavery to Freedom – Interview with Bryan Prince of Buxton, Ontario.

Back for a second visit, Bryan is considered by many to be the preeminent historian today of the Underground Railroad in Canada. Today, Bryan Prince is back for a second visit. He is the author of three books: I Came As a Stranger, A Shadow on the Household, and most recently, One More River to Cross. Our discussion focuses on A Shadow on the Household, the story of how John Weems, a free black man whose family still in slavery was sold away from him, was able to recover them with the help of the Underground Railroad.
