On November 8, 1946, Black Halifax business owner Viola Desmond made a stand against racial segregation in Canada by refusing to leave the whites-only section of a New Glasgow, N.S. movie theatre. She took her appeal to the Nova Scotia Supreme Court and became an iconic figure of Canada's civil rights movement. Seventy-five years later, Desmond’s courage continues to be honoured and remembered by her appearance on Canada’s $10 bank note.
