  Description     The film  
Five Black women talk about their lives in rural and urban Canada between the 1920s and 1950s. What emerges is a unique history of Canada's Black people and the legacy of their community elders. Older Stronger Wiser is the first film in a Studio D series entitled Women at the Well.
