While My Name Is Remembered…


This is a personal account of my association with Oodgeroo Noonuccal and the context in which it occurred.

A couple of generations of young Aboriginal people have now been fortunate enough to grow up with, and share in the legacy of, the works of Oodgeroo Noonuccal (Kath Walker). Most, understandably, have no comprehension of what life was like before this, and it's important for them in order to be able to appreciate more fully Kath's work and times.
