I’m grateful for Dauna, Jean, and Denise listening to the still small voice that encouraged them to begin this glorious journey of honoring 100 Accomplished Black Canadian Women. This 2016 first edition book holds promise, hope, and encouragement for each person who reads it. I’m honored to have been on Dauna’s special team, not only to participate invisibly, but to have been the recipient of her unfailing and genuine honesty, integrity, and love throughout this humbling project.
