Civil rights activist Viola Desmond honoured with $10 bill, first vertical note in Canada

Viola Desmond was a successful black businesswoman who was jailed, convicted and fined for defiantly refusing to leave a whites-only area of a movie theatre in 1946. Her court case was an inspiration for the pursuit of racial equality across Canada. Viola's story is part of the permanent collection at the Canadian Museum.
