Right Wrongs: 1967 Referendum –
The WA Story
This exhibition recounts the 1967 Referendum and its impact on who we are, and what we can become, through the voices and stories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Fifty years later the deeply symbolic victory of the ‘Yes’ vote remains a key moment in the long and ongoing fight for equality. Oral histories, images and stories from the State Library’s collection are featured.
Presented in partnership with the WA Museum, the Department of Aboriginal Affairs, NSLA, AIATSIS and the ABC.
