Historian and author Jim Walker

Halifax Examiner Saturday columnist El Jones speaks with Jim Walker, a noted History professor at the University of Waterloo and a member of the Order of Canada. Walker is the co-author of a recent (auto)biography of iconic black activist and lawyer Burnley “Rocky” Jones.

Also, The Borg Ship has stalled out on Argyle Street, with an announcement this week that the beleaguered convention centre won’t meet its projected April 1 opening date. This is the third deadline that developer Joe Ramia has missed. Ships may start here, but apparently conventions don’t.

Copies of Revolutionary: Burnley “Rocky” Jones can be ordered through Fernwood Publishing.
