Our African Roots

On a journey back to the multicultural origins of modern Australia, author and
journalist Santilla Chingaipe rips up the monocultural myth of Australia’s white
foundation narratives and colours in our nation’s history books by re-telling the stories
of the black African convicts, bushrangers, feminists and freedom fighters who played
a seminal role in events that shaped the nation. Australian history, she argues, has
been whitewashed for too long - it’s time to discover our African roots.
