ABC Speaking Out - Heidi Norman on "The Black Heart of Redfern: Economic development and Aboriginal people in 20th Century Redfern"

The first interview Rhianna Patrick conducted on ABC's Speaking Out of 23 August 2009 was with Heidi Norman about Redfern. [We have edited the ABC website description below to only include the Redfern material and have provided a link to the large MP3 download of the entire programme].

The inner city Sydney suburb of Redfern recently celebrated 150 years since its proclamation as a municipality and you'll hear about research into the involvement of Aboriginal people in the economic development of Redfern in the 20th Century.

Redfern recently celebrated 150 years since becoming a council, quickly became known for its progressive services and was the first New South Wales council to offer its residents electricity in their homes.

Heidi Norman is a senior lecturer at the University of Technology Sydney and is currently researching the history of Redfern through the eyes of its Aboriginal residents called "The Black Heart of Redfern: Economic development and Aboriginal people in 20th Century Redfern".

Heidi talks about the Refern of the 1800s and how it changed to the suburb we know today.
