Summary
In 2013 Nova Peris, former athlete and the first Aboriginal Australian to win a gold medal at the Olympics, became the first Aboriginal woman elected to federal parliament. She was determined to make full use of the platform she felt privileged to find herself on and continues to share the message that Aboriginal people have to keep talking and keep fighting, because the quest for equality, for equal rights for all Australians, remains, sadly, an ongoing battle. This new collection of Nova's notable speeches spans her time in the Senate as a Member of the Labor Party and includes some of her favourite all-time speeches from a number of people who have, and continue to inspire her in her daily life. The significance of each speech is discussed at the beginning of every chapter. From Nova's speeches about the referendum, to National Sorry Day, clean energy, alcohol abuse, closing the gap for Aboriginal Australia, and her inaugural senate speech, to the famous words of Martin Luther King Jr's "I have a Dream" speech, Nova: Finding My Voice is full of inspirational words about race, justice and injustice, hope, freedom and change
