Join Melbourne Author & Historian Sue Taffe for a fascinating introduction to little known Australian Upstander Mary Montgomerie Bennett. Mary fought for justice on behalf of first Australians at a time when their citizens’ rights were curtailed by repressive state laws. She was a teacher, a writer and an advocate. A friend described her as a ‘white hot flame’ due to her relentless pursuit of a better world for the people she loved. Sue’s biography of the same name seeks the sources of Mary’s inspiring energy, maintained throughout her life, in her family background and early life experiences.
