Blak History Month: LISTEN

Blak History Month, which takes place over the month of July, has been celebrated in Australia since 2008. It is a people’s movement that seeks to be a portal for positive action by, for and about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. A month of celebration and pride for Australia’s Indigenous histories and cultures of which are part of the oldest living continuous culture in the world.  

This Blak History Month, we’re celebrating by sharing some of our favourite resources – from things to watch, read and listen, to places to shop and where you can support through donating, here and across social media.

Below you’ll find just a few of our favourite talks and songs by some incredible Indigenous artists and activists from Aretha Brown to Mojo Juju to Electric Fields. We encourage you to share your favourites with us on social media too – you’ll find us @theequalityinstitute

It’s important to acknowledge that we live on stolen lands here in Australia. Sovereignty was never ceded, nor has a treaty been made. If you’d like to learn more about how to be an ally, click here, and to learn more about Blak History Month, visit the website here.
