Come along and listen to a fascinating talk by Sarah Maddison, author of The Colonial Fantasy: Why White Australia Can't Solve Black Problems. This event will be held at Trades Hall in Victoria, and is presented in conjunction with the New International Bookshop - so don't miss out!
The book argues that white Australia can't solve black problems because white Australia is the problem. Australia has resisted the one thing that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people want, and the one thing that has made a difference elsewhere: the ability to control and manage their own lives. It calls for a radical restructuring of the relationship between black and white Australia.
