Bruce McGuinness

‘The long years of suppression have taught us we have to come out fighting. We are becoming radical, we inevitably talk about black power, and we will no longer be content with a secondary role in society’

Bruce McGuinness was a Wiradjuri man born in Cootamundra NSW but he spent most of his life in Melbourne. A tireless activist for Aboriginal rights, he became Victorian state director of FCAATSI in 1969.
