Remembering Myall Creek description

On June 10, 1838, around thirty Wirrayaraay men, women and children were massacred at Myall Creek. Unusually, eleven of the assassins were tried for murder. Amid great controversy, seven were hanged. Co-editor of Remembering Myall Creek Lyndall Ryan and its Foreword co-author and Wirrayaraay descendant Aunty Sue Blacklock reflect on the impact of this terrible act of violence and the challenge of Australia’s ongoing journey towards remembrance and reconciliation.

Chair: Paul Daley
