Summary
In the 1970s, the run-down inner-Sydney suburb of Redfern was a gatheringplace for Aboriginal intellectuals and ambitious young radicals. Having fledpoverty and segregation in rural Australia in the 1950s and 60s, they set aboutfulfilling their vision - a new way of living, where Aboriginal people couldcontrol their own lives - politically, economically and culturally.Redfern: Aboriginal activism in the 1970s is the previously untold story ofhow they set about fulfilling their dreams. In a fast-paced burst of creativity andhard work, in just three years an Aboriginal health service, housing cooperative,legal service, child care centre and a black theatre were established inRedfern. They had some support and the promise of self-determination underthe newly elected Whitlam Labour government, but there was also abuse anddiscrimination. This is the story of how, with hard work, humour and vision,they prevailed to build organisations that have served as models for similarorganisations all over Australia
