Power Through Poetry
Many Aboriginal languages have survived in the face of massacres and systematic repression, but when is the last time you heard a one spoken?
Lorna Munro is a proud Wiradjuri/Gamilaroi woman and writer/poet working with Red Room Poetry. She speaks openly and honestly with Ruth Hessey about Australia’s struggle to recognise the cultural genocide committed against Aboriginal people and whether the public conversation is moving in the right direction, or not at all.
Listen to Yilaalu by PoeTRIBE, an experimental poetry and music collaboration between Lorna Munro and violinist Eric Avery.
