Episode 2: Stop Calling Me (with Barbie-Lee Kirby)

This week's Race Matters spans identity, icons and Invasion. Sara and Rhyan are joined by special guest Barbie-Lee Kirby, a Ngemba/Wailwan, Baakindji and Yuwaalaraay woman. Barbie is a NASCA board member and the CEO of We Pledge, an initiative that seeks to connect Indigenous female high school students with Indigenous professional women across various industries. The crew speak on the huge Invasion Day rallies around the country, and the need to #changethenation rather than simply change the date. They also reflect on the importance of community coming together at Yabun, and the powerful, joyous comeback of deadly 2000s legends Shakaya, who performed at the festival.
