It's shocking and sad that Canada had its own, even earlier, Rosa Parks...yet probably more of us grew up hearing about Rosa Parks and NOT .

I remember breaking out into tears of pure joy when I learned would be the first Canadian woman printed on our currency. Hers is a story more Canadians need to understand. What a remarkable woman and well deserved honour. 💪🏾❤️

Wanda Robson 's sister speaking at the unveiling of the $10 bill. Her family is going down in history. What a historical moment to be witness to. She says the action and interest of young people is the key. Education was part of who Viola was.

Three things I love about the bold new $10 bill: 1) 2) It features a museum 3) It is vertically oriented
