Abstract:

Across the continent, the First Australians were ruled by "protective legislation" that restricted their wages, their ability to travel freely, and their right to marry the partner of their choice. Yorta Yorta man Doug Nicholls crossed the color line when he was recruited to play pro football, but though he had often faced racial discrimination, it wasn't until he encountered starving tribes in Perth that he began to lobby on behalf of his people. This documentary gives an account of Doug Nicholls and the Aboriginal Australians' hard-won gains in their battle for civil rights in the 20th century. Their crusade culminated with the passage in 1967 of a national referendum that - symbolically, at least - acknowledged their status as full Australian citizens. With Doug Nicholls' daughter, Pam Pedersen (Yorta Yorta Nation); historian Heather Goodall, and others.
