The stories tell of the interaction between white and black women that led to the establishment and development of a significant school of Australian art, Ernabella Art Inc, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1998. From 'first missionary coming', through the terror of the nearby atomic bomb tests in the 1950s, to the commercial and artistic successes of the 1990s, the stories speak of great losses and regrets, but also of remarkable achievements, and of the skill and strength of the individuals whose voices we hear.
