Remembering and Celebrating Black History Month

Posted on February 8 by Kyle in News

February is Black History month. It is a time when we celebrate the people of African descent who have helped and contributed to make the world the amazing place that it is today. Black History month is most often talked about when you are a student, and it’s where you learn about courageous people like Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., The Honourable Lincoln M. Alexander, Chinua Achebe, and Buddy Guy to name only a few. It’s where you learn about slavery, about civil rights, and about racism.

It saddens us to announce passing of Alan Borovoy. He was a Canadian civil rights champion, an officer of the Order of Canada since 1982, and author of Categorically Incorrect: Ethical Fallacies in Canada's War on Terror (Dundurn 2008). Borovoy, who served as general counsel for the Canadian Civil Liberties Association for more than 40 years, was 82 years old at the time of his death.
