In My Own Words 

 

 

Learning your ABCs as an adult can be a painstaking undertaking but for a group of blackfellas in the small Australian outback town of Brewarrina having a caring friend by your side makes all the difference in the world, in fact it can lead you to discover the transformative powers of reading and writing for the first time in your life.

It’s estimated that today in Australia between 40 - 65% of Aboriginal adults are functionally illiterate in English, but out in North West New South Wales moves are afoot to whittle away at this appalling statistic.

In My Own Words will air on NITV and SBS on 30 July 2017.

The world-famous Kimberley region is under threat, with mining and big agriculture driving an unprecedented land grab.
