When Wallace Fowler enlisted, he didn't know he would wind up broken because of the colour of his skin. A black man in a white military, Fowler would suffer harassment at the hands of both superiors and local communities. When he could no longer stand the abuse, the Forces judged him "Not Advantageously Employable."
For 12 years, Fowler has battled for justice against a system which insists "there is no evidence of racism." Military Police reports have disappeared. Hard evidence given to the CF Ombudsman is missing. Witnesses and records have been ignored. National Defence continues to blame the victim and deny there is a problem. For Wallace Fowler, the fight for truth has been worse than the abuse itself.
This is his story.
