Fair Skin Black Fella

Author(s): Renee Fogorty

Children's Picture Books

An educational and heartwarming read, this story follows Mary, a young Aboriginal girl who lives on dusty cattle station. When Mary is shunned by other Indigenous girls for her fair skin, Old Ned, a community elder, comes to her rescue. Touching upon the themes of multiculturalism and prejudice, this narrative utilizes Old Ned's voice to demonstrate that family, community, country, culture, and spirituality--in lieu of skin color--are at the heart of Aboriginal identity.
