This documentary pays tribute to a group of Canadians who took racism to court. They are Canada's unsung heroes in the fight for Black civil rights. Focusing on the 1930s to the 1950s, this film documents the struggle of 6 people who refused to accept inequality. Featured here, among others, are Viola Desmond, a woman who insisted on keeping her seat at the Roseland movie theatre in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia in 1946 rather than moving to the section normally reserved for the city's Black population, and Fred Christie, who took his case to the Supreme Court after being denied service at a Montreal tavern in 1936. These brave pioneers helped secure justice for all Canadians. Their stories deserve to be told.

    Re: "Why didn't they teach us this in school?" For a teacher, it's pretty hard to teach what you never knew. I, too, am just learning this now. I've studied and taught about Black history, mostly American, but some Canadian, with the help of the Canadian Encyclopedia. However, I never knew Canadian rules such as "one may discriminate on the basis of race". Further, I never knew the stories of these heroes that pushed for and helped obtain justice. I am thankful for their efforts and thankful that we have the National Film Board to share and preserve their stories. I will be sharing this we staff and students. Canadians must learn this history and these stories.
