Black History Month Announcement!  In 1972, Rosemary Brown became the first black female to win election to a provincial legislature in Canada.  She was an activist MLA in British Columbia for 14 years.  She also ran for the leadership of the federal New Democratic Party in 1975 finishing a close second to Ed Broadbent.  Here is a quotation we should all reflect upon:  “We must open the doors and we must see to it they remain open, so that others can pass through.”
