Rodney Small, a great man and citizen of Halifax, saw the worst of it at 15 and works every day to make things better.

Logging on today, despite the call to #ShutDownAcademia, to post a link to  a short documentary about Rodney Small, a man I’m proud to know. He was a standout mature student in my early years at Dalhousie, when I taught the first year environmental requirement into the Bachelor of Management program.  I’m horrified to learn from this documentary and elsewhere that he was a victim of police brutality and wrongful arrest at the age of 15 in Halifax. He survived, he fought, he won, and thank goodness: Halifax needs him.  Black lives matter.
