First Nations in Australia have had extraordinary patience in the face of extraordinary denial.  In the words of Yothu Yindi’s song, Treaty, Aboriginal people have repeatedly seen “promises can disappear just like writing in the sand.”  In this series we’ve talked about how the media has repeatedly failed Aboriginal political aspirations and how Australia's media landscape requires a transformation that needs to go much deeper than issues of representation.  In this episode of Black Stories Matter, we're going to be hearing from leading Aboriginal journalists who have faced thes ..read more

Independent Black Media on sovereignty and self determination

We know that bad reporting can lead to bad policy and this can adversely affect the lives of First Nations people.  So far in this series, we've heard how the Australian mainstream media has failed to connect with Aboriginal communities. But for Aboriginal journalists deeply embedded in their communities, it's a completely different story.  In this episode, we're looking to independent black media, to hear what Aboriginal journalists can teach us about the stories told around sovereignty and self determination and how we can support Black media.  *Please be advised this podcast ..read more

A test we have always failed: A history of Aboriginal politics in the media

And it put reconciliation firmly on the political agenda.  But 28 years after Keating gave his speech, we still haven't passed the test he set for this nation.  In this episode of Black Stories Matter, we draw on our guests' expertise in media ..read more

A white lens has distorted Black stories ever since Captain James Cook took possession of the continent now known as Australia and since that time the interests of settlers have dominated media reporting on Aboriginal people.  This matters because reporting shapes the way Aboriginal political worlds are understood and talked about and the storyteller is often the most powerful person in the room.  In the first of five landmark conversations we ask ‘Does the Media Fail Aboriginal Political Aspirations?’  This discussion is chaired by Professor Devleena Ghosh from the University o ..read more

Ever since Captain James Cook evaded British instructions to take possession of the continent now known as Australia “with the consent of the natives”, the interests of settlers have dominated media reporting on Aboriginal people.  This year, there’s been a global awakening. The events of 2020 including the Black Lives Matter movement and COVID-19 have challenged traditional narratives, creating new opportunities for how we tell stories, who tells them and what stories are told.  Black Stories Matter is a five-part series that brings together media researchers, historians, former pol ..read more
