We decided to record a bonus episode because recently Australia’s prime minister Malcolm Turnbull landed a pretty big blow on Indigenous Australians. Last week, he rejected the Indigenous Voice to Parliament proposed in the Uluru Statement From The Heart – a way forward for recognition devised by hundreds of Indigenous leaders earlier this year. We’re recording this conversation in front of a small live audience at Junket, a Canberra conference for future leaders and people doing interesting things. Nakkiah Lui and Miranda Tapsell invited delegates into Nakkiah’s cosy hotel room to talk to about race in this country.
And to ask them the question we ask all guests: when did you first realise your race mattered?
We’ll be back in 2018 with Season 2, until then you can contact the hosts @nakkiahlui and @missmirandatap
Don’t forget, you’re Pretty… For An Aboriginal.
