21. januar - Lincoln Aleksander Dan

Više puta sam se susretao sa ovim velikim čovjekom i učio od njega kako se treba poštovati drugo i drugačije, kako se treba boriti za ljudska prava i slobode, za istinu i pravdu. Lincoln Aleksander Dan se održava svakog 21. januara u čast jedne od najistaknutijih ličnosti Hamiltona. Lincoln je bio prvi član Crnaca u parlamentu Kanade (1968), ministar u vladi Kanade (1979) i o Generalni-guverner Ontaria (1985). Veliki je bio borac za jednakost među svim ljudima. Umro je 2012. godine.
January 21 Lincoln Alexander Day
I have met this great man many times and learned from him how to respect the other and the different, how to fight for human rights and freedoms, for truth and justice. Lincoln Alexander Day is a national day of recognition held every Jan. 21 to honour one of Hamilton’s most historic and distinguished figures. The Hamiltonian was the first Black member of Parliament (1968), a cabinet minister (1979), and Ontario’s lieutenant-governor (1985), and a champion of equality and excellence his entire life, before he died in 2012.
