Am I Black Enough for You?
HK$ 204.00
The Co-op
''I'm Aboriginal. I'm just not the Aboriginal person a lot of people want or expect me to be.'' What does it mean to be Aboriginal? Why is Australia so obsessed with notions of identity? Anita Heiss; successful author and passionate campaigner for Aboriginal literacy; was born a member of the Wiradjuri nation of central New South Wales; but was raised in the suburbs of Sydney and educated at the local Catholic school. She is Aboriginal - however; this does not mean she likes to go barefoot and; please; don't ask her to camp in the desert. After years of stereotyping Aboriginal Australians as either settlement dwellers or rioters in Redfern; the Australian media have discovered a new crime to charge them with: being too 'fair-skinned' to be real Aborigines. Such accusations led to Anita's involvement in one of the most important and sensational Australian legal decisions of the 21st-century when she joined others in charging a newspaper columnist with breaching the Racial Discrimination Act. He was found guilty; and the repercussions continue. In this deeply personal memoir; told in her distinctive; wry style; Anita Heiss gives a first-hand account of her experiences as a woman with an Aboriginal mother and Austrian father; and explains the development of her activist consciousness. Read her story and ask: what does it take for someone to be black enough for you? \\Author Biography: Anita is a writer; poet; activist; social commentator and academic. She is the author of Yirra and her Deadly Dog; Demon; I'm Not Racist; But... ; My Story: The Diary of Mary Talence; Sydney 1937; and a series of chick lit novels including Not Meeting Mr Right and Paris Dreaming. Her work has been shortlisted for the NSW Premier's Literary Awards Young People's History Prize and she has won the DEADLY award for writing a number of times. She is a member of the Wiradjuri nation of central New South Wales; but grew up in Matraville; Sydney. Anita describes herself as a concrete Koori with a Westfield dreaming - a city chick whose idea of Survivor is a night in a caravan. Awards: VIC Premier�s Awards for Indigenous Writing

Rabia Siddique is a woman with an extraordinary perspective. Growing up as a Muslim in the conservative and monocultural landscape of 1970s suburban Perth; she knew what it was like to be different. It gave her an abiding passion for equality and social justice that was to guide the course of her life. She trained as a lawyer; and found herself working in the UK on that fateful day in September 2001 when terrorists attacked the US. She joined the British army in the Judge Advocates' division as a military lawyer. She served in Iraq and was taken hostage by insurgents as she tried to negotiate the release of two kidnapped British soldiers. She battled for hours to save their lives; using her legal expertise; knowledge of Islam and Arabic to negotiate with their captors. After their release; her colleague received a Military Cross. Rabia received nothing. Her subsequent sex and race discrimination case against the British Army made headlines around the world. After leaving the army; she joined the Crown Prosecution Service as a prosecutor working on terrorism cases. Last year she returned to Perth to raise her triplet sons. Her perspective as a feminist; a social justice crusader; a lawyer; a soldier; a former hostage; a terrorism prosecutor and a Muslim is unique; and her memoir is a story of grit; courage and conviction like no other.

Must-Read Biographies Everyone Should Include into their Personal Collection

Biographies provide a glimpse into the past or capture the life and experiences of an icon, allowing readers to walk in someone else’s shoes. A meaningful biography can serve as a great teacher, offering valuable life lessons and teaching readers to be like the subject or sometimes, not to be like the subject. Fictional stories make for fun reads as well, but nothing is as compelling and inspirational as real-life recollections of one’s life. Noteworthy biography recommendations that everyone should own, or at least read about, are mentioned below.

Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela

The late Nelson Mandela was a former President of South Africa, serving from 1994 to 1999. He was known to be a strong supporter of the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa. Nelson Mandela’s autobiography contains intricate details about this leader who was revered and respected by many people, including world leaders, around the world. The book documents significant moments in his life – his childhood, growing up to be a freedom fighter, being imprisoned for 27 years, and his role in building a democratic South Africa. This book also analyses Mandela’s perception of the anti-apartheid struggles of South Africa, a movement that he was well-known for throughout his life.

The Story of My Experiments with Truth by Mahatma Gandhi

Easily one of the most well-known leaders of our time, this autobiography of Mahatma Gandhi is an honest and humble account of his life. This book highlights the forty years he spent in India and details every aspect of Gandhi’s life, from historical events to political incidents, as well as his personal philosophy on life.

The Autobiography of Malcolm X by Malcolm X

Possibly one of the most controversial icons in American history, Malcolm X was once called the most dangerous man in America. This classic autobiography chronicles the story of this Muslim leader’s life and introduces readers to the growth of the Black Muslim movement. The book mentions the details of his life, from the poverty he faced during his childhood, to his criminal teenage years, to his emergence as a national leader and world leader. This book also features controversial topics revolving the African American struggle for equality, lies, and limitations of the American Dream, and the inherent racism that exists in the American society.

Agatha Christie: An Autobiography by Agatha Christie

This book unravels the life of the “Queen of Mystery”, world-renowned crime novelist Agatha Christie. This autobiography enlightens readers on the experiences that shaped her into the beloved writer she was. The book highlights her happy childhood and close relationship with her mother, tragic episodes such as her mother’s death and her first husband’s adultery, and much more. Agatha Christie also talks about her extraordinary career and her past works that made her one of the most influential novelists.

Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler

Mein Kampf (meaning My Struggle in German) is an autobiography of arguably one of the most infamous real-life “villains”, Adolf Hitler. This book gives readers an in-depth and no-holds-barred insight on the controversial leader’s life, touching on elements such as his childhood, early aspirations, his conflict with his father, his rise in politics, and his well-known hatred of the Jews. To truly understand Hitler’s story, you need to read this autobiography.
