Today all Australians have equal rights by law, but this was not always the case. For Aboriginal soldiers returning from active service in the Second World War, the inequalities were made especially stark. Why didn't they have a voice in society? Despite generations of unfair treatment, Indigenous people have made significant contributions to Australian society and identity. In Unsung Hero, discover the experiences of one Aboriginal soldier, Eddie Albert, and how laws and attitudes impacted on his life.
