In Radical Heart, Dr Shireen Morris takes us inside a vital campaign to meet the powerful Indigenous advocates, helpful (and unhelpful) non-Indigenous lawyers, unlikely conservative and monarchist allies and infuriating politicians. We travel with Morris through the wins, disappointments and, ultimately, the betrayals that led to the Turnbull government's heartbreaking rejection of the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
Radical Heart is a challenge for all Australians to dream together of a fairer future, and work as one to make it happen.
This event is presented by the Centre for Comparative Constitutional Studies at Melbourne Law School in partnership with Trinity College Melbourne and Melbourne University Publishing.
The book will be launched by Richie Ahmat, Co-Chair of the Cape York Partnership Group and a member of the Prime Minister's Indigenous Advisory Council.
