Shadowboxing: Tony Birch on growing up in Melbourne

Shadowboxing: Tony Birch on growing up in Melbourne.      


'Because I lived in a very poor area of Fitzroy in the sixties and seventies - for Aboriginal people, poor white people and migrants' - privacy was a privilege that only a few had' - Tony Birch 


Join Magistrate Abigail Burchill in conversation with distinguished Australian Author Dr Tony Birch as he reflects on his experiences growing up Aboriginal in Melbourne.

This final Koori twilight in our 2021 series marking the 30th anniversary of the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody will explore what has changed for those living on society's margins and what remains the same. 

This event is supported by the Judicial Officers' Aboriginal Cultural Awareness Committee (JOACAC).
