Product Description

Fair Skin Black Fella is the story of Mary, a young Aboriginal girl who lives on a dusty, red cattle station. She is shunned by the other girls because of her fair skin until Old Ned, one of the community elders, finally speaks up.

With words full of knowledge and wisdom, he teaches the girls that Aboriginal identity transcends skin colour and that family, community, country, culture and spirituality are what being Aboriginal is really about.

Renee Fogorty, a young Wiradjuri woman from Sydney, wrote and illustrated Fair Skin Black Fella as a Year 12 student. Her own experiences while growing up inspired her to write a non-confrontational story about the importance of belonging and acceptance that explores the cultural identity issues facing young Australians.
