Description - Paint Me Black by Claire Henty-Gebert
Claire Henty-Gebert's life is remarkable and inspiring. Born in the late 1930s, the daughter of a white settler and an Alyawarra woman, Claire was four years old when she was taken to the Bungalow mission in Alice Springs. In Paint me Black she recalls happy days spent at the Croker Island mission and being sent south to escape the threat from Japanese fighters during World War Two. Claire later retuned to Croker Island and married and was inspired to trace her Aboriginal family.
