Apology Day at Redfern
On 13 February 2008 former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd delivered an official apology to Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, with specific reference to the Stolen Generations, at Parliament House in Canberra. Hundreds of Sydneysiders gathered at Redfern Community Centre to watch the live telecast of Kevin Rudd’s apology.
On the day of the apology address to the Stolen Generations, staff from the City’s History Team recorded oral histories and took photographs of members of the celebratory crowd at Redfern Community Centre. This video, which includes the oral history testimony and images, was produced by the City of Sydney’s History Team in 2009.
