Summary
"Different White People presents a trilogy of remarkable stories about campaigns for Aboriginal rights. But the most curious thing about this book is that the central characters in this book are not Aborigines. Some of the ?different white people? you will meet in these pages are well known Australians, but many are not. But they all had one crucial common characteristic: a single-minded determination to support and protect the rights of Aboriginal people. This book is a journey through three remote regions of Australia. It begins in 1946, as Aboriginal pastoral workers walk away from oppressive conditions to make their famous stand in the Pilbara, in Western Australia. The second, lesser known story unfolds in Central Australia, when Britain and Australia collaborate to conduct their missile and nuclear weapons programs in Aboriginal country. And, the final section of this book features a landmark action in the Northern Territory: Aboriginal workers and their families walked away from white bosses in the now-famous ?Gurindji walk-off? in 1966. And amidst these fascinating episodes in Australia?s history was an eclectic group of people working tirelessly to protect and support Aboriginal people and Aboriginal rights. They were The Different White People."--back cover
