Since 1980’s Henry Reynolds has provided strong evidence that generations of Australians have grown up with a distorted and idealised version of the colonisation of Australia and the resistance of Indigenous people. Stephen Gapps will interrogate several examples of conflicts in the Sydney Region, and address the seminal question asked by Henry Reynolds more than 20 years ago: “Why weren’t we told?”

Dr Gapps is an award winning author and curator the National Maritime Museum. In 2017, he was awarded the State Library of NSW Merewether Fellowship for The Sydney Wars.

This is a joint talk held by the Randwick and District Historical Society and Randwick City Library.
