Oodgeroo Noonuccal

I am a huge fan of Aboriginal art and poetry in general. And today would have been Oodgeroo Noonuccal’s 91st birthday!

Born in 1920, Oodgeroo was an artist, poet and political activist, as well as the first Australian Aboriginal to publish a book of verse.

Today I am thinking of this great woman and what she did to pave the way for equality and the arts in Australia.
