MLK Reaction in MTL

STORY BY: Jaima Geller
YEAR: 1968
LOCATION: Montreal, QC

Jaima lived in Montreal, and she remembers that after Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968, black workers from the Queen Elizabeth Hotel held a protest. They said, "If you think things are bad in the States, but good here, they're not". This was a real eye opener for her. Thanks for sharing, Jaima.
