About this product
- DescriptionFor every Aboriginal child taken away by the state governments in Australia, there was at least one white family intimately involved in their life. One Bright Spot is about one of these families - about 'Ming', a Sydney wife and mother who hired Aboriginal domestic servants in the 20s and 30s, and became an activist against the Stolen Generations policy. Her story, reconstructed by her great-granddaughter, tells of a remarkable, yet forgotten, shared history.
- Author BiographyVICTORIA HASKINS was born in Brisbane, Queensland, in 1967 and lived in the East Kimberley in Western Australia as a child, until moving to Sydney, New South Wales as a teenager. She was educated at Ku-Ring-Gai High School and the University of Sydney. Having worked in bookshops for many years, Victoria moved to the North Coast of New South Wales to run a travelling bookshop there, when she discovered the papers on which this book is based. Later, Victoria worked as a curator of Australian Social History at the National Museum of Australia, in Canberra, before taking up a History lectureship at Flinders University in South Australia. Victoria now lives in Adelaide with her partner, Indigenous historian John Maynard, and their three children. This is her first book.
