Ancestors in the Attic: Slavery Roots (2009)
Bob Stoutley, of Milton, ON, is white, but recently discovered that: his father may have taken a family secret to his grave. Digging into his family history Bob stumbled across a man claiming they shared the same grandfather, and that this grandfather was black. Bob’s own father had passed away and there was no one left in his family to tell him the truth, so Bob turned to Ancestors in the Attic. Now he begins a journey that will take him to Canada’s east coast in search of answers about his family’s roots, and about the secret his father kept hidden.
