In this one-woman play by Leslie McCurdy, you will meet four women of African Descent who affected change in Canada. Marie-Joseph Angelique, a slave who was said to have burned down “half” of Montreal from whom we have the first slave narrative in North America; Rose Fortune, the first “policewoman” in North America who helped “freedom seekers” settle in Annapolis Royal Nova Scotia; Mary-Ann Shadd, the first North American woman to publish and edit a newspaper; and Viola Desmond who refused to give up a seat to segregation well before the celebrated Rosa Parks and who is the face of the Canadian $10 bill. Experience how each of these women affected change in the Canada of their time and ours.
Doors open 6:30 pm. Performance starts at 7:00 pm.
