Viola Desmond

Viola Irene Desmond was a Canadian civil rights activist. She boldly fought racial segregation when she refused to leave the “whites-only” section of the Roseland Film Theatre in New Glasgow, a province of Nova Scotia. Subsequently, she was convicted of a tax violation for the one-cent difference in where she sat and where she was supposed to sit.
