Dr Matthew Klugman, co-author of the award-winning Black and Proud: The Story of an Iconic AFL Photo, will talk about the searing image that forced the AFL, the fans and the nation to confront their prejudices head-on. On 17 April 1993, indigenous footballer Nicky Winmar stood up against racial abuse and made history. Facing the Collingwood crowd that had taunted him all day the St Kilda player pulled up his shirt, pointed to his chest and declared: ‘I’m black and I’m proud to be black’. Discover how Winmar’s gesture has become part of the mythology of Australian popular culture.
