Two grandmothers share the stories of their remarkable lives as a record for their grandson Jackson. As a young woman, Rosemary Brown left Jamaica for Canada, where, among other accomplishments, in 1972 she became the first Black woman elected to public office in Canada. Ruth Horricks-Sujir travelled to India in the 1950s, where she married Raghu Sujir and started a family. Back in Canada, she faced conservative attitudes toward her mixed marriage, widowhood and life as a single, working mother.
