About this Event

The ‘Buffalo Legends’ were a group of men who knocked down the barriers of racism on the sporting field. On the way they established a way of life based on tolerance, respect and making your own fun whatever obstacles are placed in your path. In Buffalo Legends, the descendants of the original legends tell us, with in-your-face humour and candour, how multiculturalism was established in Darwin, long before the word was invented, and why it is still worth fighting for. (53 mins)

Following the screening we will be joined by old Darwin families and members of the football fraternity for a discussion on football and its role in shaping the community on and off the field.

This is part of the Northern Territory Library’s Curator’s Cut film series, screening rare films from the Library collection followed by a discussion with experts on the subject.
