Lunchtime Conversation: Charles Perkins AO by John Maynard

The second in series of talks with some of Australia's best-known innovators, revolutionaries and underdogs

One of the most charismatic and well-known Aboriginal political leaders of the twentieth century, Charles Perkins was born to Arrernte and Kalkadoon parents in the `old’ Alice Springs telegraph station.

An elite soccer player and the first Aboriginal Australian to graduate from University, his fiery, uncompromising contribution to the Indigenous Rights movement is illuminated by Professor John Maynard, Chair of Aboriginal History at the University of Newcastle.

This hour-long talk at the Australian Museum is a great alternative lunchtime activity, or an opportunity to take your time and visit the museum before or after the talk.

Head to the Australian Museum for just this talk, or buy a series pass and come to all six (with one free).



Tuesday 28 May 2019 from 12.30pm to 1.30pm


Adult: $30.00
Concession: $27.00
Museum Member: $25.00
