Aborigines who aren’t in politics are also doing their part to raise the profiles of their communities through media. 2013 marks the 10-year anniversary of Living Black, Australia’s only in-depth news program dedicated to telling the stories of concern for present-day Aborigines across Australia and the Torres Strait Islands.
"We are closer to the issue because we may have faced it within our own families. Our program gives indigenous people a voice right across the country," Living Black’s creator and host, Karla Grant, told the BBC. Grant and her production team are all Aborigines.
