Dr Ros Kidd: 10 November 2009

The 2009 memorial lecture was delivered on 10 November by Dr Ros Kidd, a historian and activist, who spoke on “stolen wages.” Ros was the first non-Indigenous speaker to be invited, but her topic was so pertinent to Indigenous justice that the principle of providing a platform for Indigenous voices was waivered for this year. Ros’ investigation and exposure of this matter extended from her home state of Queensland into the national arena, culminating in the 2007 Senate Inquiry into Stolen Wages.
