|Title:||Aborigines & Activism: Race, Aborigines & the Coming of the Sixties to Australia||Contributor(s):||Clark, Jennifer Rose (author)||Publication Date:||2008||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/2126||Abstract:||In a provocative reappraisal of the 1960s, 'Aborigines & Activism' recontextualises the history of Aboriginal activism within wider international movements. Concurrent to anti-war protests, women's movements, burgeoning civil rights activism in the United States and the struggles of South Africa's anti-apartheid freedom fighters, dramatic political changes took place in 'assimilated' Australia that challenged its status quo. From the early days of grassroots resistance through to Charles Perkins' 1965 Freedom Ride, the 1967 Referendum, Canberra's Tent Embassy and beyond, this is the story of the Great Southern Land's racial awakening - a time when Aborigines and their white supporters achieved paradigmatic shifts in the search for equality, justice and human dignity that still has powerful implications for 21st century Australia.||Publication Type:||Book||Publisher:||University of Western Australia Press||Place of Publication:||Crawley, W.A.||ISBN:||9780980296570||Field of Research (FOR):||210301 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander History||HERDC Category Description:||A1 Authored Book - Scholarly||Other Links:||http://nla.gov.au/anbd.bib-an42084459
