National Talkblack 091020

We have:

Fern Newcombe, solicitor at Marrawah Law discussing coronavirus and the economy.

Pattie Lees, Author and CEO of Injilnji Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Corporation Aged Care talking about the release of her book ‘A Question of Colour’. “The removal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children from their families remains a dark chapter in Australia’s history. Pattie Lees was just ten-years-old when she and her four siblings were separated from their mother on the grounds of neglect and placed into State care. Believing she was being shipped and exiled to Africa, Pattie was ultimately fated to spend the rest of her childhood on the island once dubbed ‘Australia’s Alcatraz’ – Palm Island Aboriginal Settlement, off the coast of Queensland.”
