Freedom Day

$30.00 AUD

When many voices are joined together, with courage, change can happen.

In 1966, more than two hundred courageous Aboriginal people walked off the Wave Hill Cattle Station in the Northern Territory. Led by Vincent Lingiari, these stockmen and their families were walking together to fight for equal pay and land rights.

Freedom Day delves into the events that led up to this moment, and makes a rallying cry for the things that still need to change in its wake. 

Thomas Mayor and Rosie Smiler, Vincent Lingiari’s granddaughter, worked together to bring this vital story to life and to inspire a new generation of change-makers.
