Something Different

Published October 10, 2021 by A.J.B. Johnston

Something a little different has come my way.

It’s an inquiry from the Dictionary of Canadian Biography to write a short biography of Mathieu da Costa.

For those not familiar with the name, Da Costa is the earliest known person of African descent—for whom we have a name—in Canadian history.

I have written about Da Costa before, and I am pleased to take this on for the DCB.
