About this product
- DescriptionThe massacre of Aboriginal people at Myall Creek marked a critical point in the struggle over land and power between the indigeus peoples of Australia and the European invaders. It resulted in seven white men being hanged for their crimes - the last ever to hang for the murder of Aboriginal people. Massacre at Myall Creek, by playwright John Summons, helps students to explore the social and political climate surrounding the massacre. As well as the play, the book contains comprehensive study units, making it an excellent resource for students of Drama, English, History and Social Studies. Among other issues, it deals with displacement, racism, authority, justice, capital punishment and personal responsibility.
