The Dying Days of Segregation in Australia: Case Study Yarrabah – Barbara Miller (2016)


Segregation usually brings up images of South Africa or the American South but we had it right here in Australia. Legal segregation for Indigenous people on Queensland reserves like Yarrabah near Cairns ended only in 1984 but it refused to die easily. This book was written at a critical time when one era was ending and another beginning with local government and land rights gradually being achieved. Hear the voices of Aboriginal people at Yarrabah as they describe their dreams in 1984 and see them realized in 2016.

This book should be a standard school textbook.
