Mayann Francis — An Honourable Life
by Mayann Francis
This candid memoir portrays her humble beginnings in Whitney Pier, a child of immigrants, and the paths that took her to become Nova Scotia’s first Black lieutenant-governor in 2006.
Once CEO of the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission, and provincial ombudsman, she is a past member of United Way, the board of governors of Cape Breton University, and the Canadian National Institute for the Blind.
Mayann Francis poses tough questions in this book, but also offers advice and encouragement to anyone faced with challenges.
