In 1946 Viola Desmond bought a movie ticket at the Roseland Theatre in Nova Scotia After settling into a main floor seat an usher came by and told her to move because her ticket was. This is an illustrated children's book The pictures are vibrantly colored Most Canadians have heard of Rosa Parks in the United States and her refusal to move to the back of the bus Viola Desmond had a similar struggle 9 years earlier and it was in New Glasgow Nova Scotia She owned a beauty parlor business in Halifax and was a well respected member of her community On her way to some business meetings in Cape Breton the car she was driving broke down in New Glasgow and she was told it would take a day for repairs To pass time she decided to attend a movie at the Roseland theatre At that time black people had to sit in the balcony and Viola sat in the downstairs auditorium She was dragged out and thrown in jail She was charged with tax evasion as there was one cent tax on auditorium seats but they refused to allow her to pay it There was an appeal but the theatre was judged to be correct but the case drew attention to segregation This was in 1946 Her actions marked the beginning of the Civil Rights movement in Nova Scotia I attended Roseland theatre freuently as a preschooler up to the end of High School and later on visits home I remember how the black movie goers had to sit in the balcony so the segregation continued In my memory it was close to the mid 1950's when I was in Grade 11 Some of the Grade 12 football players came in and a black member of the team was with them They sat downstairs near the front I nervously waited for something bad to happen but nothing did This horrible practice was ending Viola later moved to Montreal and later settled in NYC The Government of Nova Scotia granted her a posthumous pardon and an apology in 2010

Viola Desmond Wont Be BudgedOnly good for the balcony She offered to pay the difference in price but was refused “You people have to sit in the upstairs section” Viola refused to move She was hauled off to. This book contains fewer details than Meet Viola Desmond but the pictures have a lot of emotional impact I especially liked the one on pages 15 16 with the extreme close up of the usher manager and police officer drawn from Viola’s perspective
