As this is Black history month, and a valuable reason to why I wrote The World of Bugsy & Taz, I am proud of my black heritage and the life my grandfather lead as a black man in Montreal working as a porter for CN Railways

These photos are excerpts of a great documentary called “The Road Taken”, which you can find through the National Film Board of Canada, featuring some footage of my Daddy Jim!
