Description

Teachers, Principals, Parents - Get on the Freedom Train during Black History Month

The 2018 story of Harriet Tubman and Her Commitment to the Freedom of Others

You Can't Break My Spirit: The Colors of Justice is a short novel adapted into a Play by Equal Justice Canada staff and Donna Michelle Bernard. You Can't Break My Spirit is about creating Love, Understanding and Victory in the midst of challenges. A young brown woman goes undercover into the Toronto Justice system so she can understand the experience of the people she serves in her missionary work. She expects to be released from jail after one night, but instead is trapped in a system that will only release you if you plead guilty, or have tens of thousands of dollars to pay lawyers, who are experts in their field and are well connected. The faces around her are vulnerable and agrressive souls who have given up on any possibility of having a normal life, people who have lost everything; casually sacrificing their souls for momentary freedom, while being trapped in a cycle that seeks to destroy them. The protagonist encounters dishonesty, systemic and overt racism, politics, and injustices within the legal system, finally uncovering a system that does not work efficiently at every level. As she searches for solutions, she finds the true meaning of love, courage and dignity. The protagonist's bravery, determination and persistent faith at every step of the journey is, in the end, rewarded after spending two hundred thousand dollars and fighting for the freedom to live her life on her own terms.

Opening on February 1, 2018 at the Palmerston Library Theatre at 560 Palmerston Avenue at Bloor Street, Toronto. You Can't Break My Spirit by Equal Justice Canada staff is Suitable for 10 years old and up. No swearing, no sexual content and no violence.
