Racism, Identity and Labels

When

In this session, our panellists will unpack the complexities of racial identities and ask if race is skin deep. Who is ‘black’ in Australia today? Who is Asian-Australian?  Who is ‘white’? And where do race and religion overlap when it comes to identity? And is it really possible, or desirable, to be colour-blind?
