A talk presented by Mark McKenna about his book Return to Uluru @ Fowler Hall, Storey Park Community Centre, Hornsby or Online via Zoom
May 19 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

This event will be held onsite and online. Free. Bookings essential via https://www.hornsby.nsw.gov.au/lifestyle/events/library-events/Meet-Mark-McKenna

Join Mark McKenna (appearing live via video) as he talks with Michael Bennett about his new book, Return to Uluru.

When Mark McKenna set out to write a history of the centre of Australia, he had no idea what he would discover. One event in 1934 – the shooting at Uluru of Aboriginal man Yokununna by white policeman Bill McKinnon, and subsequent Commonwealth inquiry – stood out as a mirror of racial politics in the Northern Territory at the time.

But then, through speaking with the families of both killer and victim, McKenna unearthed new evidence that transformed the historical record and the meaning of the event for today. As he explains, ‘Every thread of the story connected to the present in surprising ways.’ In a sequence of powerful revelations, McKenna explores what truth-telling and reconciliation look like in practice.

Return to Uluru brings a cold case to life. It speaks directly to the Black Lives Matter movement, but is completely Australian. Ultimately it is a story of recognition and return, which goes to the very heart of the country.
