50th Anniversary Presentation of the Ninth Floor @ 140 McLaughlin College, Senior Common Room

It started quietly when a group of Caribbean students, strangers in a cold new land, began to suspect their professor of racism. It ended in the most explosive student uprising Canada had ever known. Over four decades later, Ninth Floor reopens the file on the infamous Sir George Williams sit-in – a watershed moment in Canadian race relations and one of the most contested episodes in the nation’s history. Can we make peace with the past? What lessons have we learned? What really happened up there on the 9th floor?
