NFB says
In celebration of the recent announcement that Viola Desmond will be featured on the Canadian $10 bill, we dedicate the Journey to Justice documentary to Desmond and the other Canadian unsung heroes in the fight for Black civil rights.

Journey to Justice
This documentary pays tribute to a group of Canadians who took racism to court. They are Canada's unsung heroes in the fight for Black civil rights. Focusing on the 1930s to the 1950s, this film documents the struggle of 6 people who refused to accept inequality.

Race
In this personal documentary, director Sobaz Benjamin introduces us to an interesting group of people: a black woman who wants to be considered iconically Canadian, a white man who is culturally and psychologically black, and a black woman who decides to leave “Canada’s racial cold war.”
