Our African Roots

On a journey back to the multicultural origins of modern Australia, author and journalist Santilla Chingaipe rips up the monocultural myth of Australia’s white narratives and colours in our nation’s history books by re-telling the stories the black African convicts, bushrangers, feminists and freedom fighters who played seminal role in events that shaped the nation. Australian history, she argues, has whitewashed for too long - it’s time to discover our African roots.
