Four Indigenous Leaders
The theme for this year’s National Reconciliation Week is #InThisTogether. All Australians have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation; understanding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures is a good way for individuals to start their own reconciliation journey.
This week, the NFSA’s Black Screen collection is sharing the inspiring life stories of four leaders who challenged injustice and worked tirelessly to generate massive changes to Australian society: Faith Bandler, Neville Bonner, Rosalie Kunoth-Monks and Charles Perkins.
These four legends were incredibly generous when approached by the filmmakers behind the 1990s Film Australia series Australian Biography, making themselves available for hours-long, in-depth interviews where they discussed everything from their childhood days, to their many successes and dreams for the future.
