About Yaphet Robinson (1979—2000)

Yaphet Raphael Robinson was struck by a car on May  22nd 2000 and slipped into a coma until his untimely passing on June 3 2000.

The circumstances surrounding his death caused some racial tension in London, Ontario. To this end, Marike Hildreth a friend of the CBWCL initiated a special award in 2001 in memory of Yaphet as well as honour people who show commitment to upholding human rights within the city of London, Ontario.
