Summary

Neither Aboriginal nor white, Shireen Morris is both outside observer and instrumental insider in the fight for Aboriginal rights. Shaped by her family’s Indian and Fijian migrant story, Morris is a key player in what many consider the greatest moral challenge of our nation: constitutional recognition of Aboriginal people.

She takes us inside this vital campaign to meet the powerful Aboriginal advocates, helpful (and unhelpful) non-Aboriginal lawyers, unlikely conservative and monarchist allies and infuriating politicians.

We travel with Morris through the wins, disappointments and, ultimately, the betrayals that led to the Turnbull government’s heartbreaking rejection of the Uluru Statement from the Heart.

Radical Heart is a challenge for all Australians to dream together of a fairer future, and work as one to make it happen.
