Right Wrongs: 1967 Referendum – the WA Story

Saturday 27 May 2017 09:00AM to Sunday 03 September 2017 05:00PM
Ground Floor Gallery

Right Wrongs reimagines our understanding of the 1967 Referendum and its impact on who we are, and what we can become, through the voices and stories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Fifty years later, the deeply symbolic victory of the ‘Yes’ vote remains a key moment in the long and ongoing fight for equality. Oral histories, images and stories from the State Library’s collection are featured.

Presented in partnership with NSLA, AIATSIS, ABC, the WA Museum and the Department of Aboriginal Affairs.
