The Long Story by Graham Perrett, Author and Member for Moreton

Throughout history, major social and political events have impacted and shaped our interracial relations. Yet often the historical narrative is told through limited perspectives – and these important interracial events are left untold.

Co-author and Member for Moreton, Graham Perrett teams up with Queenslander and proud Murri Man, Wayne Long, to launch a new book and tell The Long Story

A child of both Aboriginal ancestry (Kamilaroi Nation) and Chinese heritage, Wayne Long has lived in the intersection of cultures and talks in the book about how major events, like the Voice to Parliament, can impact the personal and political experience of our country. The Long Story illustrates Australia’s brutal history of injustice, blood and tragedy, but through this, many incredible stories of resilience.

Charles Sturt University media spoke with MP Graham Perrett about the importance of this book in telling an accurate story of Australian history and how understanding Australia’s historical relationship with race sheds light on current issues.
