Description - The N Word by Stephen Hagan

An uncompromising insight into Indigenous politics. Academic and political advocate, Stephen Hagan, went all the way to the United Nations with his battle to remove the word 'Nigger' from a sign at a Queensland sports ground. Pushing through harsh opposition, including KKK death threats against his family, Hagan successfully petitioned the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. Stephen fought his own people in order to campaign for transparency and accountability in publicly-funded organisations and was involved in the Queensland State Tripartite Forum and the controversial 1996 Mundingburra bi-election. The N Word touches on family history, especially that of his father, Jim Hagan, who was a leading spokesman on Aboriginal Affairs and was the first Aboriginal to address the UN General Assembly in Geneva. Discover the man behind the public face and see how a childhood growing up in a fringe camp fired Stephen Hagan's determination to fight for human rights.
