About this product
- DescriptionThis is the story of Mary, a young Aboriginal girl who lives on a red and dusty cattle station. Shunned by the other girls because of her fair skin, Old Ned, one of the community elders, finally speaks up. With words full of kwledge and wisdom, he teaches the girls that Aboriginal identity transcends skin colour and that family, community, country, culture and spirituality is what being Aboriginal is really about. Renee Fogorty shows that prejudice has boundaries and that it occurs within and between cultural groups. Her personal perspective makes Fair Skin Black Fella a tale of universal experience that many young readers will identify with.
- Author BiographyRenee Fogorty is a descendant of the Wiradjuri people from central New South Wales, Australia. She is a high school student, an author, and an artist.
