The document below provides a short background history to Aboriginal campaigns for equal rights, with a particular focus on Victoria. In this brief document you will also find information about some of the activists who were significant in continuing the campaign for social justice in the early 1990s, at the time Maree Clarke photographed these NAIDOC pictures. They include: Gary Foley, Richard Frankland, Aunty Eleanor Harding, Robbie Thorpe, Uncle Larry Walsh, Ruby Hunter and Archie Roach. Many of these people continue the fight today.
