Jefferson Davis Edwards was one of many black Oklahomans who looked to Canada as a land of opportunity where they could live as full citizens. He settled with other black farmers in a place called Amber Valley in northern Alberta, raised a large family, and delighted in asserting his citizenship as a community leader. The Amber Valley baseball team that Edwards started left a deep impression on western baseball lore. In French: J.D. Edwards: Un fermier de Amber Valley
