This week You Can’t Ask That hears from African Australians about common misconceptions.
This episode features the first-person voices of African Australians, who make up less than 2% of the Australian population, yet seem to have dominated the headlines with alleged links to violence, gangs and antisocial behaviour. This episode of You Can’t Ask That goes beyond the outrage, giving voice to a diverse mix of African Australians whose lives are more complex than the widespread sentiments suggest. Asked uncomfortable questions about gangs, big d***s, poverty and hair, their answers are surprising and anything but black or white.
Wednesday 3 April at 9pm on ABC.
