White Australia Has A Black History
White Australia Has A Black History

This is not your typical Australian History book or biography. Behind the dominant story is the black history of white Australia as seen through the eyes and life of William Cooper and other First Nations People.

Let me introduce you to William Cooper, a pioneer of the Aboriginal movement for basic human rights who shaped Australia’s political activism.

He was a leader in political activism for basic human rights who stood up for Australian Aborigines. He also led Aborigines in a protest march to the German Consulate in Melbourne against the persecution of Jews at Kristallnacht in 1938.

But Cooper’s contribution to Australia does not stop there. In this eye-opening political memoir or biography, you will learn William Cooper’s story from the very beginning and gain an in-depth understanding of his everlasting influence on future political activism.

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Barbara Miller and this book is the embodiment of my dream to make William Cooper’s heart and achievements known to the future generations.

We live in a highly-divided world where political and human rights are endangered by religious fundamentalism, discrimination racism, autocracy and worldwide terrorism. That’s why it is important to:

✔️ LEARN from our past mistakes & use history as a valuable lesson

✔️ UNDERSTAND William Cooper’s political activism & human rights watch

✔️ APPRECIATE the work of one of the Christian pioneers of the First Nations Peoples movement In Australia

What’s In It For You?

The First Nations Peoples movement has often been an enigma for white Australia. It’s finally time to shed light on these issues and follow the footsteps of one of the most influential leaders of Indigenous political action in the black history of white Australia who I have called a “gentle warrior.”

By the end of this eye-opening Australian black history book, you will be able to:

✔️ FIND OUT more about William Cooper’s inspiring journey & the obstacles he had to overcome

✔️ DISCOVER little-known facts about the origins of the White Australia Policy

✔️ COMPREHEND the political status quo In Australia during William Cooper’s life and how It affects current events
