Canada unveiled a new $10 bill Thursday featuring black civil rights activist Viola Desmond, who replaces first Canadian prime minister and the father of Confederation Sir John A. MacDonald.
The purple polymer bill is the first vertically oriented bank note issued in Canada.
Desmond is the first African-American woman and the second woman in Canadian history to be placed on a currency.
Desmond's legacy as a pioneer in the civil rights movement stemmed from her refusal to sit on the balcony of a New Glasgow movie theatre in 1946.
