A new series of inspiring talks and performances featuring some of Canada’s most fascinating personalities.
Author and community educator Wanda Robson honours the legacy of her sister, Viola Desmond, in this unique evening presentation. Ms. Robson has raised public awareness about the struggle for racial equality in Canada through her presentations and publications, including Sister to Courage: Stories from the World of Viola Desmond, Canada’s Rosa Parks.
Her efforts culminated in the appearance of Viola Desmond’s image on Canada’s new $10 bill, a landmark event featured in the Canadian History Hall. Nova Scotia Senator Wanda Thomas Bernard will moderate, and a reception will follow.
In English with simultaneous translation in French.
