SPEAKERS FOR THE DEAD (PG)

While Canada has a proud reputation of being a haven from American racism, the racism it has itself was subtler and almost as terrible with openly allowed segregation and discrimination. Yet as Journey to Justice shows, there were brave people who refused to put up with this deplorable situation and we follow their civil rights challenges up to the 1950s to change it.

 

Speakers for the Dead is about a small Ontario town’s struggle to restore a desecrated African-Canadian cemetery and the resulting turmoil over it.
