Guest Curator Nayuka Gorrie speaks with Chelsea Watego, Amy McQuire and Veronica Heritage-Gorrie about writing from the front lines, bearing witness in a way no one else can. From Collingwood’s #dobetter saga to young black women telling Pauline Hanson she's not Indigenous to Invasion Day rallies. As Nayuka says, “In the colony, it is the black woman who speaks truth to power and sees this colony for what it really is.”
Veronica Gorrie is a Gunai/Kurnai woman who lives and writes in Victoria. Black and Blue, a memoir of her childhood and the decade she spent in the police force, is her first book.
