BHM Treasures

Recently, I read this article about Voila Desmond. I had no idea of who she was, but when I read that she was going to be the face of the Canadian $10 note 2018 , I thought this has to be big and she must had does some amazing work. Now realizing that we had our own Canadian Rosa Parks. She predates the Rosa Parks that we all hear of in the USA. Right here in Canada, Viola Desmond too, did  her own fight for basic human rights.
