The 1967 referendum and the 1992 Mabo decision were significant events in the ongoing struggle to achieve equal rights for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This exhibition was inspired by the 1964 civil rights song ‘A change is gonna come’.

A Change is Gonna Come was on display at the National Museum of Australia from 24 May 2017 to 28 January 2018.
