Talking Heads: Mark Tedeschi QC
Join barrister and Crown Prosecutor, Mark Tedeschi QC, as he shares chilling tales of the 1838 massacre of 28 Aboriginal men, women and children at Myall Creek.
Mark will share his startling research into the trial, and explore the incredible role of John Hubert Plunkett, the prosecutor who brought the men responsible to justice. Known as ‘the Martin Luther King of colonial Australia,' Plunkett was determined to see a fair and unprejudiced legal system for Aboriginal people in New South Wales.
As a Barrister and a Crown Prosecutor for thirty-five years, Mark Tedeschi AM QC has appeared in some of the most significant criminal cases in Australia. His book Murder at Myall Creek is based on his thorough research into this atrocity and his deep, professional understanding of the colonial justice system.
