By Adam Jones from Kelowna, BC, Canada - Quote on Segregation from Supreme Court Decision - Brown v. Board of Education Historic Site - Topeka - Kansas - USA, CC BY-SA 2.0, Rights remains on our minds these days as more and more of the world seems to be in the process of diminishing these rights.. The notion of Social Justice percolates through so much of our thinking. Five trials – in Europe, the U.S. and Canada – spanning nearly 1400 years – will be presented. All of them in some way pushed us forward as human societies. President Barack Obama said that: “if you’re walking down the right path and you’re willing to keep walking, eventually you make progress.” Let’s look at these trials and see if we think he is right.
