In Nova Scotia, Africaville was established as a place of safety for people of African descent, and this compelling debut novel chronicles the lives of three generations of the Sebolt family—Kath Ella, her son Omar/Etienne, and her grandson Warner—who make their home there. Weathering the Great Depression, the social protests of the 1960s, the economic upheavals in the 1980s, and local discrimination, Kath Ella tries to hold on to rebellious Omar. As he refutes the past and decides to break from the family, Omar will potentially upend all that Kath Ella and her people have tried to build, even as the Canadian government threatens the community.
