Indigenous peoples in Australia have experienced inequality since the arrival of white colonists. Fortunately, more and more people are advocating for change and fighting for equality for all using different platforms. Cathy Freeman provides students with biographical information about an Aboriginal Australian athlete who used her success to bring attention to the mistreatment of Indigenous peoples and to motivate and inspire people around the world. The book can also be used to teach students how to determine cause-and-effect relationships and the proper use of prefixes.
