Compelling and inspiring, this autobiography chronicles the life of Bridglal "Bridge" Pachai, a lifelong advocate of social justice whose journey has taken him from South Africa to Halifax, Nova Scotia. The book traces his years teaching history—at universities in South Africa, Malawi, Gambia, and Halifax—while also detailing his important work as director of both the Black Cultural Centre in Nova Scotia and the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission. Ultimately, this memoir reveals how one man’s ideals and convictions have shone through to hold him on his remarkable path.

and stresses the importance of seizing the opportunities that the opening doors present."  —J. Colin Dodds, president, Saint Mary's University, from the preface
