Kevin Gilbert has talked with his people and taped their story - in the bush, in small country towns, and in the black ghettos of Sydney and Melbourne.
'What emerges is a damning indictment of the white man for his despicable discrimination, his injustice and intolerance, his ignorance and above all his failure to recognize the Aboriginal as a fellow human being with a deep sense of pride, a history as old as time and an affinity with his land that the white man will never understand.'
Herald
'A frank and compelling social document which exposes themes and issues important in everyday lives of Aboriginal Australians. Its criticisms and lessons should not be ignored.' Neville Perkins, Australian

First words
Quotations
The land claim? It’s right. this is their country. These poor people here, they know it’s their land, their ancestor’s land. White people just came and took and built it all up like Larrakia Barracks down here. I’ve explained it to white people, I’ve said, ‘Look, say I built a tent on your lawn. What would you do?’ ‘Oh,’ he said, ‘I’d get the police and move you off.’ Well, there you are…you’d run to the law. You want things exactly according to the law. But, when it comes to the Aboriginal land right you disregard the law, disregard the law.
