3 hours watch

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this page may contain images, voices or names of deceased persons in photographs, film, audio recordings or printed material.

Clancestry Conversation 1 #NOTJUSTBLACK

'Blackfellas' are frequently asked to articulate our identity story, but often in terms of the authenticity of our ethnic or racial identity. #NotJustBlack enables us to explore the life narratives of a group of strong, proud 'blackfellas' who are all 'black enough' and so much more.

Panellists: Senior Constable Matthew Bond, Rhianna Patrick, Joshua Kilroy, Kai Clancy, Nadine McDonald-Dowd.
Chair: Wesley Enoch.

Clancestry Conversation 2 #BLACKTIVISM

This conversation examines both the old and new battlegrounds of black activism, and how the messages of the movement have influenced and infiltrated local and global agendas.

Panellists explore the future of black activism, and the role of Black Media and keyboard warriorship in mobilising the masses in the digital age.

Panellists: Professor Gracelyn Smallwood, Dr Gary Foley, Luke Pearson, Amy McQuire.
Chair: Leesa Watego.

Clancestry Conversation 3 #SOVERIEGNTYX

#SovereigntyX explores Indigenous people's expressions of sovereignty as a theory, action, and political movement, enacted both individually and collectively

Panellists: Professor Aileen Moreton-Robinson, Ben Graetz, Pekeri Ruska, Callum Clayton-Dixon.
Chair: Dr Chelsea Bond.
