Guest speaker: Dr. Sylvia Solomon

Over the years, women have successfully challenged and changed laws, both in the United States and Canada. Explore three landmark human rights trials: 1954’s Brown v Bd. of Education concerning segregation in US schools; 1969’s Roe v Wade and a woman’s right to choose, and 2015’s Carter v Canada which gave Canadians the right to die with dignity – learn how “great triumphs can only come out of Great Trials.”

Dr. Sylvia Solomon is a retired educator with over 30 years teaching in elementary and secondary schools as well as universities including Queens University and the University of Toronto. For 14 years she worked at the Ontario Ministry of Education developing curriculum policy and resources that changed teaching and learning in Ontario. Since her retirement Dr. Solomon has delivered lectures in the Great Trials that Changed the Course of History series at The University of Toronto, Ryerson University, The Toronto Reference Library, the 92nd St. Y in New York City, and at the Instituto d’Allende in Mexico. We are very pleased to welcome her to the virtual Miles Nadal JCC!
