Product Description
 
Neither Indigenous nor white, Shireen Morris is both outside observer and inside player in the fight for Indigenous rights. Framed by her family's Indian and Fijian migrant story, Morris gives a personal perspective on what many consider the greatest moral challenge of our nation- constitutional recognition of Indigenous Australians.



She reveals the behind-the-scenes action of working with powerful Indigenous advocates, helpful (and unhelpful) lawyers, unlikely conservative allies and infuriating politicians-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.Neither Indigenous nor white, Shireen Morris is both outside observer and inside player in the fight for Indigenous rights.
