29 SEPTEMBER 2014 -- Living Black Season 21 Episode 3

Living Black Conversations format returns in our new series with a one-on-one special with former AFL Champion Nicky Winmar.

"I was frightened for my life after that, I received death threats”

“I walked away from the game, I didn’t want to play anymore”

Nicky Winmar is admired for his heroic stance against racism when he famously lifted his jersey and pointed to his skin, standing as a proud Aboriginal man, in response to racist comments from a Collingwood fan.

Nicky speaks about that day in 1993 that would change his life forever.

In this one-on-one special, we get to know the man behind the famous name.
