National Talkblack 150719

On todays National Talkblack via NIRS – NIRS – National Indigenous Radio Service we had:

Anthony Bennett – Chairperson of Indigenous Education & Boarding Australia. Whilst the nation’s focus is on closing the Indigenous education gap, without the full 2018 ABSTUDY budget measures the distance will not close. Indigenous families are still being short changed by the failure of the parliament to legislate a critical component of the 50 Years of ABSTUDY 2018 budget measures.

Associate Professor Brenda Croft – Australian National Museum. For whom are archival documents created and conserved? Who is obliged to care for them, provide access to their content, and for how long? The state, libraries, museums. Or does material collected long ago and then archived belong personally, culturally and intellectually to the people from whom the original material was collected and, eventually, to their descendants?

We also had a lot of callers on today’s program adding to the conversation ?
