Introduction
 
Fight to Canada is a historical enactment; it re-establishes historical facts about the African American experience. As Glenda Carpio argues, it “operates within a fictional space that merges the past (antebellum and Civil War America) with the novel’s present (the years after the Civil Right movement), both of which intersect with our own present moment of reading.”  Beyond conventional power relations between master and slave, it exposes some new dimensions of the relations of power.
