William Cooper: An Aboriginal Life Story. In conversation with Bain Attwood and Daniel James
Join us to hear Professor Bain Attwood in conversation with Daniel James, and
hear about the work and life of William Cooper – a respected Aboriginal leader and
social justice campaigner from the 1930s.
William Cooper’s passionate struggle against the dispossession of Aboriginal people and the denial of their rights and his heroic fight for them to become citizens in their own country has been widely commemorated and celebrated.
By carefully reconstructing the historical losses his Yorta Yorta people suffered and endured, William Cooper: An Aboriginal Life Story by Professor Bain Attwood reveals how the first seventy years of Cooper’s life inspired the remarkable political work he undertook in the 1930s.
