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.
