Robinson, Gwendolyn and John W. Robinson  
Seek the Truth: A Story of Chatham’s Black Community

Publisher: NP: n.p., 1994.
Paper bound, second printing, illustrated, 144pp includes index. Back pages are moderately `rippled, ` from old water damage, but it is quite minor. No markings, stains or soiling, no missing or torn pages, and a tight spine and clean cover. 290 grams. This book is a local history of the Black community in Chatham – an Ontario town close to Detroit which has had a large black population since the 19th century. Many former slaves, fleeing the United States, ended up settling in or near Chatham, and they have made a community there ever since. This book gives the history, with an extraordinary amount of detail about early settlement, prominent (and obscure) early families, old businesses, schools, and so on. The level of detail is quite astonishing, and this book would be an extraordinary resource for the genealogist. The book reproduces old advertisements for black-owned businesses form the 19th and early 20th century, lists of veterans from both World Wars, excerpts from 19th century censuses, black clubs and sporting organizations & teams, Masonic groups, and much more. There are many entire sections devoted to individual families, and the whole book is packed with photographs. This is one of the better local histories I have seen, and considering the subject matter, it is astonishingly detailed! All books in stock and available for immediate shipment from Winnipeg, Manitoba.
