Blackfella whitefella

This iconic song is one that marks the history of the Aboriginal Rights movement along the way to reconciliation. Though written 30 years ago, the lyrics have become the inspiration for a picture book project in which school children around Australia were invited to illustrate the meaning of the song. The simple power of the lyrics have been captured in a diversity of styles and motifs by the children’s frank images, all filled with the brightness of hope for the song’s theme – we are one. It’s the kind of book to pore over while listening to the song in the background, something that would make an inspirational experience for children.
