Celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Artists by Watching These Films and TV Shows Tonight
There's so many things you can do to celebrate and amplify the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Protests which broke out across the United States over the murder by police of unarmed Black security guard George Floyd have thrown into stark reality the ongoing issue of Aboriginal deaths in custody in Australia. More than 432 Aboriginal people have died in police custody since a Royal Commission into the issue concluded in 1991.
If that bothers you, which it should, you can donate to organisations fighting for racial justice, you can attend a protest, and you can make an effort to educate yourself and become a better ally. And you can support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists who make film and television.
If you're looking for a better understanding of Aboriginal peoples' lives — or frankly just want to be entertained — here's a list of films and TV shows made by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders that you can stream right now.
