Talking to My Country

21 June

Stan Grant

Drawing on his personal history as a Wiradjuri man and his professional history as a journalist reporting from conflict zones around the world, Stan Grant confronts the big questions about who we want to be as a nation. He considers whether Australia can be a country that can fully enshrine the rights of Indigenous peoples, that can wrestle with its past, that can draw a line through its history, that can give Indigenous peoples the opportunity to make decisions about their lives that will lift Indigenous people and communities.

Stan Grant is the ABC’s chief Asia correspondent and host of the flagship current affairs program Matter of Fact. He is one of Australia’s most respected and awarded journalists, with more than 30 years’ experience in radio and television news and current affairs. Stan has a strong reputation for independence and integrity and has interviewed international political and business leaders, including our own Prime Ministers and senior Ministers. Prior to taking up his latest role, Stan served for a decade as a senior international correspondent for CNN in Asia and the Middle East, broadcasting to an audience of millions around the world. Stan is an award-winning and best-selling author of several books and has contributed articles to many major Australian newspapers, magazines and journals.
