On May 27, 1967, Australians voted in a referendum to change how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were referred to in the Constitution. Explore these personal stories, opinions and historical recordings of what happened.
How far have we come since 1967?
“Right Wrongs” is an online exhibition developed by the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies, in partnership with the ABC, and National and State Libraries Australasia. “Right Wrongs” commemorates the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Referendum that gave the Federal Parliament the capacity to legislate in respect to Indigenous people.
Right Wrongs is a partnership project between the ABC, AIATSIS, National and State Libraries Australasia including National Library of Australia, State Library of Western Australia, State Library of NSW, State Library of Queensland, State Library of Victoria, State Library of South Australia, Northern Territory Library, Libraries ACT and LINC Tasmania.
