The Freedom Ride was an important catalyst for some substantial changes in Aboriginal affairs over the next 10 years or so.Not to mention their dire living conditions - housing, health, and education.
Significantly, The Freedom ride brought Charles Perkins to prominence as a passionate and articulate Aboriginal leader who was not afraid to tell white Australians just how disastrous their racism was for the lives and opportunities of his people.
The Freedom Ride of 1965 was a significant event in the history of civil rights for Indigenous Australians. Inspired by the Freedom Riders of the American Civil Rights Movement, students from the University of Sydney led by the legendary Charles Perkins embarked on a journey through western New South Wales to expose racism and segregation. 50 years on, the bus has headed west again to honour the legacy the Freedom Rides.I admit I knew nothing about the Freedom ride till yesterday.
