-Remember that feeling you had when you did your first handstand/any arm balance , against and or away from the wall....”all the world is waiting for you, and the power you possess.”💫🤸🏿♀️😂 😂😂
The $10 bill featuring civil rights heroine Viola Desmond went into circulation today.
In 1946, Desmond, a Halifax beautician and businesswoman, was arrested and tossed out of a movie theatre in New Glasgow, N.S., for sitting in the whites-only section.
She spent one night in jail and her subsequent fight against the injustice she faced helped end segregation in Nova Scotia.
Desmond is the first Canadian woman to be featured alone on a regularly circulating banknote.
Wanda Robson, Desmond’s sister, will be at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg to witness the launch of the bill and make a ceremonial first purchase.
“It's very hard to describe the feeling you get when your own sister, a member of your family, is going to be honoured... with a Canadian bill,” she said.
