Humanities Salon: A panel on Violence in Modern Aboriginal History

The panel members will be:

  • Professor Gordon Briscoe AO, author of his just released autobiography Racial Violence
  • Jackie Huggins, Former Co-Chair of Reconciliation Australia, and a Queensland commissioner for the Bringing Them Home enquiry
  • The Hon Bob Debus MP, former Attorney-General, State Government in NSW
  • Professor Peter Read, author of the recently released Tripping Over Feathers. Scenes in the Life of Joy Janaka Wiradjuri Williams
  • Julie-Anne Williams, daughter of Joy Williams

Julie-Anne Williams, Gordon Briscoe and Joy Williams were deeply affected by the policy of separating  Aboriginal children from their parents and communities.  Bob Debus and Peter Read have been closely associated with the violence affecting Aboriginal Affairs for many years, violence towards to children, on the streets, to young adults, to settlements and missions, and in the cities.

The panel discussion will conclude with the launch of the two books, by Jackie Huggins and Bob Debus
