Robert Sutherland, early black lawyer, makes The Globe

Globe & Mail has a good lively story today about efforts to see Robert Sutherland, early Ontario lawyer, early Queen's graduate, early immigrant from Jamaica, and a black man, fully recognized at Queen's University for his important contributions to his alma mater.

I feel slightly proprietorial about this story, having written about it a decade or more ago (not that I was the first) in my Law Society of Upper Canada and Ontario's Lawyers. Good to see it made (more) public, neverthelessl
