AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In 1965, a young man named Charles Perkins exposed the treatment of Indigenous Australians as second class citizens. Travelling on a bus, he led a group of university students on a 'freedom ride' through New south Wales and Queensland. Their protests against racism were met by outraged locals, but the students kept fighting for justice. They made headlines around the world, helping to change attitudes and, eventually, Australian laws. This is a story of the people, the ideas and the events surrounding the Freedom Ride, and how it changed Australia forever.' (Publication summary)
