1 The Trial of Ruby McCollum 2003 Dec 16
"Ruby McCollum, a wealthy African-American wife, finds herself pregnant a second time by her white physician and senator-elect lover. Torn between her husband, who threatens to shoot her if she has another white baby, and her lover, who threatens to shoot her if she aborts his child, Ruby chooses to murder her lover. Zora Neale Hurston, famous writer of the Harlem Renaissance who covered the case for The Pittsburgh Courier, pointed out that the trial marked the first time in history that "Paramour Rights"--the unwritten antebellum law giving a white man the right to a "Negro" woman whether she was married or not--was called into question by the testimony of Ruby McCollum."

"This Web portal contain comprehensive Internet resources which categorizes past, present and future events, people, places and issues about Canadians of African descent. The website reflects my interest in integrative inclusive curriculum that include a pluralist incorporation of the contributions of African Canadians. The website appeals to a variety of target groups. However, for the purpose of using the resources in school curriculum to support teaching and learning, the links are organized under headings including Early Canada; Contemporary Canada; Curriculum Integration; Research; Events; Interactive Discussion and Communication and Site Search."
