"This well-researched and clearly-written book documents the experiences of Black Francophones hailing from Sub-Saharan Africa and living in the predominantly anglophone province of Alberta. Drawing on the qualitative analysis of numerous documents and semi-structured interviews, the book explores how the participants construct multiple identities based on language, race, and citizenship while fighting racism and the multiple forms of exclusion they face. Blackness and la Francophonie is essential reading for scholars and informed readers interested in identity formation, anti-racism, and/or the politics on language in Canada."


Daniel Béland, Professor & Director of the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada, McGill University
