    Happy International Woman's Day to Viola Desmond.... Bravo Viola Desmond. Desmond becomes the first black person – and the first non-royal woman – on a regularly circulating Canadian bank note. “It’s a long-awaited sense of belonging for the African Canadian community,” said Russell Grosse, executive director of the Black Cultural Centre for Nova Scotia. “The launch of the bill sends people of African descent the message that Canada is finally accepting us. We belong.” The bill marks a growing recognition of Desmond’s refusal to leave the whites-only section of a Nova Scotia movie theatre on Nov. 8, 1946 – nearly a decade before Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a segregated bus in Alabama – and the seminal role it played in Canada’s civil rights movement.
