The 15 years from the late 1950s to the early 1970s was a time of unusual collaboration between black and white activists in Australia.

Alliances were formed between Aboriginal Australians motivated to help their people and white Australians wanting to redress the injustices suffered by dispossessed peoples in the building of the Australian state. This site tells their stories.
