The Hon. Lincoln Alexander was the founding Chair of the Canadian Race Relations Foundation when the organization began its work in 1997. This book is a living legacy of a man who will be respected for his work in the area of anti-racism in Canada. Quoted from publisher's site: "Among the important stories that need to be told about noteworthy Canadians, Lincoln Alexander's sits at the top of the list. Born in Toronto in 1922, Alexander embarked on an exemplary life path that has involved military service for his country, a successful political career, a thriving law career, and vocal advocacy on subjects ranging from anti racism to the importance of education. This biography traces a remarkable series of events from Alexander's early life to the present that helped shape the charismatic and influential leader whose impact continues to be felt today. From facing down racism to challenging the postwar Ontario establishment, becoming Canada's first black member of Parliament, entertaining royalty as Ontario's lieutenant-governor, and serving as chancellor of one of Canada's leading universities, Alexander's is the ultimate, uplifting Canadian success story, the embodiment of what defines Canada."
