AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Freedom by John Maynard adds an extra and long overdue dimension to our historical knowledge of Aboriginal activism and politics. The 1960s have long been upheld as a watershed in the modern Aboriginal rights movement. Charles Perkins’ 1965 Freedom Ride through New South Wales, the 1966 Gurrindji walk-off at Wave Hill and the campaign to support the 1967 Referendum have all taken their place in the history of Aboriginal activism. Maynard, however, shows through the life of his grandfather, Fred Maynard, that Aboriginal activism had deeper roots than is commonly known.' (Introduction)
