Honour Before Glory

Wednesday February 27

Dir. Anthony Sherwood
2001 | 1h 7 min

Honour Before Glory is a docudrama about Canada’s one and only all-Black World War I battalion, The Number Two Construction Battalion. Based on the diary of Captain William White, battalion Chaplain, the film tells the story of the segregated battalion that allowed black men who had previously been turned away by recruiters to enlist in the military. The battalion overcame tremendous obstacles of discrimination during the war to become an important part of Canadian history. 

Honour Before Glory is screened in association with the exhibition Photography: First World War, 1914 - 1918 (Part II).
