Black History Month

Violet King (1929-1982)
Born in Calgary to descendants of the Black pioneers of Alberta, Violet King was a woman of many “firsts”. She grew up in Sunnyside, attended Crescent Heights High School and, in Grade 12, she became the president of her high school’s girls' club. In Law School, she was the only woman in her graduating class, and the first Black person to graduate with a law degree in Alberta (U of A 1953). After articling with the Calgary law firm in 1954 King became the first Black person admitted to the Alberta Bar and the first Black woman lawyer in Canada. In 1976 when she was promoted to Executive Director of the YMCA’s National Council, she became the first woman to hold a national executive position with that organization. She was only 52 years old when she passed away of cancer in New York on March 30, 1982.
