The history of the Black Loyalists is a very rich and diverse one, yet it has been overlooked by many historians.  It has also unfortunately been misunderstood creating a great loss to our Loyalist heritage. In this lecture, the specific topics which will be discussed by Adrian Willison are:  (1) the resettlement of the Black Loyalists in the Tracadie/Guysborough area of north-eastern Nova Scotia, and (2) a discussion of the Black Loyalists who went to London, England.
