    Critical Review of The Negro by W.E.B. Dubois The book I have chosen for review is The Negro, written by William Edward Burghardt Du Bois. The book was originally published in by the Henry Holt and Company press out of New York, but the edition I read was a unabridged reprint of the first edition from Dover Publications Inc/5. The Book of Negroes takes its title from a British military document recording details about thousands of Black Loyalists who fled New York City for Nova Scotia in It is the first novel to examine the story of African peoples who, after enslavement in the United States and escape to Canada, returned to Africa in the late eighteenth century.

      The 3, people that were listed in the Book of Negroes were evacuated by ship to the colony of Nova Scotia. From there many of the new African Canadians continued on and settled back on the continent of Africa, establishing the city of Freetown, Sierra Leone. The Book of Negroes is a television miniseries based on the novel of the same name by Canadian writer Lawrence book was inspired by the British freeing and evacuation of former slaves, known as Black Loyalists, who had left rebel masters during the American Revolutionary British transported some 3, Black Loyalists to Nova Scotia for resettlement, documenting their names in Genre: Drama.
