Game Changers: Throughout Black History Month, our popular series pays tribute to Black cultural visionaries who inspire us to push ahead at a time of profound social change.

Two essential NFB docs screened back-to-back:

Journey to Justice
D: Roger McTair | Canada | 47 Min | 2000

Journey to Justice follows six unsung heroes in the fight for Black civil rights in Canada from the 1930s to 50s. Among them are Viola Desmond, a woman who insisted on keeping her seat at a cinema in Halifax; and Fred Christie, who in 1936 took a Montreal tavern to court for not serving him. Hear their stories of bravery and struggle in the face of oppression.

Sisters in the Struggle
D: Dionne Brand, Ginny Stikeman | Canada | 49 Min | 1991

One of the final projects of the NFB's Studio D—the world's first female-run studio— Sisters in the Struggle is an insightful look at the intersection of sexism and racism. Politically active Black Canadian women discuss their personal experiences with the battle to fight systemic discrimination and patriarchy in a revealing discourse that is dishearteningly relevant in 2018.

Your ticket includes admission to both films.

Co-presented by A Different Booklist.
