Neither Indigenous nor white, Shireen Morris is both outside observer and inside player in the fight for Indigenous rights. Framed by her family's Indian and Fijian migrant story, Morris gives a personal perspective on what many consider the greatest moral challenge of our nation: constitutional recognition of Indigenous Australians. She reveals the behind-the-scenes action of working with powerful Indigenous advocates, helpful (and unhelpful) white lawyers, unlikely conservative and monarchist allies and infuriating politicians - the wins, disappointments and, ultimately, the betrayals that led to the Turnbull government's heartbreaking rejection of the Uluru Statement from the Heart. Radical Heart is a challenge for all Australians to dream together of a fairer future, and work as one to make it happen.
