Did you catch the 2016 Annual History Lecture on ABC Radio National’s Big Ideas program last Wednesday? The History Council of NSW’s Annual History Lecture 2016 was delivered by Professor Heather Goodall at Sydney Living Museums’ The Mint during History Week on 7 September 2016.

Her inspiring talk, ‘Neighbours – and heroes’, explored the many fascinating Australian activists who had the courage to cross national boundaries and cultural and ethnic borders to build friendships and stand up for equality.
