This week on Let’s Talk – Black Power, join Ruby as she catches up with climate warrior, land protector and Indigenous human rights activist Murrawah Johnson. Murrawah is a Wirdi woman from the Birri Gubba Nation. Murrawah holds connection to Wangan and Jagalingou Country as a Wirdi Traditional Owner, and is also proud of her ties to Kangalou, Kullilli and Iman Peoples. Since being asked at the age of 19 by her Elders in their Traditional Owners Family Council to be a voice of young people and future generations, she has shown her commitment to Country, culture, justice and a strong self-determined future for her people.  

Murrawah is now an established Aboriginal rights advocate, and has worked on Aboriginal rights litigation in the Federal Court and Supreme Court of Queensland; lobbying State and Federal governments, and international financial corporations; and building First Nations campaign capacity to represent on critical human rights, environment and climate change issues. In this rich and wide ranging conversation, Ruby & Murrawah catch up on the everyday work of Black power: protecting Country, cultural integrity, Black knowledge, and collective justice.
