Pays tribute to six Black Canadians who took racism to court during the 1930s-1950s. Viola Desmond kept her seat at a Halifax theatre in 1946 rather than move to the section normally reserved for Blacks. Fred Christie, denied service at a Montreal tavern, appealed all the way to the Supreme Court in 1936. Others worked for fair accommodation practices in the 1940's and dedicated their lives to fair employment practices and immigration policies.

Directed by Roger McTair in 2000, this 47-minute documentary delves into the struggle of the black people in Canada.
Some black pioneers helped secure justice for all Canadians.
Certainly their stories deserve to be told and we should keep those in mind.
