Beschreibung

Written by one of the passengers, this book recounts the story of Australia's historic Freedom Ride--the 1965 bus journey of 29 Sydney University students to fight racism. First-person accounts from fellow riders illustrate the challenges along the ride, including confrontations, intense street debates, and physical violence. Included are interviews from local residents, both black and white, who met the bus and struggled with the consequences. Pages from the author's diary are included.

For many years she taught at the University of Technology, Sydney, before joining the ANU, where she now teaches courses on Australian history, historical writing, and world history.
