Bain Attwood in conversation


Please note: This is an online event.

Join us to hear Bain Attwood in conversation.

William Cooper: An Aboriginal Life Story by Bain Attwood tells the important story of William Cooper. Not politically active until his 70s, William Cooper became a notable activist, best recognised for his landmark 1933 petition to the King for representation of Aboriginal people in the Commonwealth Parliament. Yet despite the extraordinary political campaigns Cooper established in later life, his name has largely evaded public memory. William Cooper reconstructs the first 70 years of Cooper’s life, foregrounding his political achievements, and piecing together the story of how he came to be a politically active figure to be recognised and celebrated today.

Bain Attwood will be in conversation with Mark McKenna.
