Summary Rita Huggins was stolen from her country as a child in the 1920s, and taken to what was then the Cherbourg Aboriginal Reserve. From that time, and also from the years as a single mother in Brisbane in the 1960s, Rita had the desire to make something better for herself, her family, and the Aboriginal people. The 1960s ushered in important days in Aboriginal politics and these years as well as contemporary Aboriginal activism are seen here through Rita's eyes
