"The Autobiography of Burnley "Rocky" Jones tells the story of an interesting life and its accomplishments; illuminates the black experience in Nova Scotia through one life in its historical context; explains the evolving nature of race relations and human rights in recent Canadian history; reveals the origins of the 'remedial' approach to racial equality, propounded by Rocky in the 1960s and since adopted by both activists and official human rights agencies; describes tactics and strategies for community change; intends to inspire engagement with life and community through the example of an activist-intellectual committed to equality for all Canadians."-- Provided by publisher.
