Quote about Sylvia Hamilton

"Hamilton's films belong to a well-defined, cohesive project in which she unearths missing pieces of Black history -- a history that runs against the grain of the Canadian myth of tolerance and multiculturalism -- and exposes the myths and prejudices to which African-descended Canadians have been subjected in this country. More importantly, perhaps, she pays tribute to those who have ensured their survival as a people and celebrates the heroines and heroes who have surmounted enormous social, economic, and institutional obstacles to gain personal and professional success."
-- Shana McGuire, Darrell Varga (source)
