“88” is a landmark documentary that explores the remarkable events that led up to January 26th 1988, the march and its aftermath. For many people their memories of the Bicentennial are tied to the Tall Ships coming through Sydney Harbour with Princess Diana and Prince Charles gracing our shores. At the other end of the city the March for Justice, Freedom and Hope took place – the largest protest march since the Vietnam Moratorium with over 30,000 Aboriginal people serving as a reminder that white Australia has a black History.
