Our African Roots: Australia Uncovered
54m

At a time when African Australians are increasingly made to feel that they don’t belong in this country, journalist and author Santilla Chingaipe unearths Australia’s forgotten African history and reveals the central role people of African ancestry have played in events that shaped our nation - from the First Fleet to the Eureka Rebellion and beyond. An act of historical truth-telling, Our African Roots interrogates the myths of Australia’s white foundation narratives, colours in our nation’s history, and reveals modern Australia’s origin story to be a complex, multicultural and multiracial affair.
