Prof Shane Houston is Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Indigenous Strategy and Services) at the University of Sydney – the first Aboriginal person to be appointed to such a senior role at any Australian university. Tonight, with the Gallery’s deputy director Suhanya Raffel, he discusses how the 1965 Freedom Ride helped awaken the nation’s conscience on Aboriginal affairs. Afterwards, enjoy the silky harmonies of Indigenous folk/jazz duo Microwave Jenny or catch a screening of Not one less.
