Format: Paperback
Viola Desmond might have remained only a date in little known Canadian history'November 8, 1946, the evening she refused to sit in the blacks-only section of a movie theatre in Nova Scotia. Instead, through the winning storytelling ability of her youngest sister, Wanda Robson, Viola comes alive as a brave and passionate businesswoman devoted to opening doors to black beauty culture for all women, as a devoted member of the family that in turn encouraged and inspired her education and courage, as well as emerging as an inportant icon in the history of social justice in Canada. Called "Canada's Rosa Parks," the truth is that several years before Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus in the U. S., Viola Desmond was defiant in that movie theatre, a tiny women carried out by two men, spending the night in jail. You might say that Rosa Park's was the Viola Desmond of the United States. In any case, the book SISTER TO COURAGE Sister to Courage: Stories from the World of Viola Desmond, Canada's Rosa Parksis a worthwhile, daring, and entertaining read. It keeps Viola Desmond alive. It tells the story of three courageous women: the mother, Gwendolyn Davis, Viola Davis Desmond, and Wanda Robson, who made her own courageous mark in the world.
