Black Australians

Leaflet, written by J. Newfong, issued by The National Aborigines' Day Observance Committee. At head of page 2: "Conscious of the fact that to date Australian history books have paid little or no attention at all to the presence of the black Australians, the National Aborigines' Day Observance Committee decided - for National Aborigines' Day, July 14, 1972 - to invite a black Australian to supply what in his view represented part of the missing section in the history books. We publish his views herewith with no further comment."
