AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Since early 1996 we have witnessed the bold assertion once again of racism through what has been termed `Hansonism' (after Pauline Hanson, founder of .the Pauline Hanson One Nation Party), who was most prominent in raising in the contemporary context the 'bogeyman' of Black privilege in this country; with all of its ramifications, most especially access to excessive amounts of unwarranted Government funding, the covering up of the extent of such funding, without need of accountability.

'The other side of the picture she has consistently painted of Aboriginal people is that they will not work, that they are criminal, that they cannot and will not control their children, and so on. In fact promoting the old stereotypes of Aborigines as being lesser beings than non-Aboriginal (except those of Asian origin).'

      Series: Frank Archibald Memorial Lectures 1986 series - publisher essay

      'The Frank Archibald Memorial Lecture is an annual event held in honour of Mr Frank Archibald, a revered Aboriginal community member of the Armidale area. Frank Archibald was renowned for his knowledge and interest in all issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, particularly education.

      'The Frank Archibald Memorial Lecture has been held as part of the University of New England’s Lecture Series since 1986 and is dedicated to Frank Archibald, his family and Aboriginal people of the New England region. The Lecture is presented by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander speakers who are leading professionals in fields such as education, law, social justice, government and the arts. When the University established the Lecture, its intention was to invite speakers to give public address on current issues which are important to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, with an emphasis on education.

      'In 2011 the 25th anniversary of the Frank Archibald Memorial Lecture was commemorated through a presentation by the founding Director of Oorala Aboriginal Centre, Ms Lynette Riley, who had established this lecture series at the University in 1986.'
