Black in the Outback
Reggie visits a marginalized Aboriginal community suffering from addiction and generations of institutionalized racism. What hope do the younger generation have of a better life?
Travelling to Australia - one of the richest nations on earth - Reggie Yates investigates why the country’s indigenous people suffer such extreme social deprivation and inequality.
A ten-hour inland drive from Sydney, Reggie heads into the outback, to an old mining town called Wilcannia, home of one of the largest Aboriginal communities in Australia with a 600 strong population, 80% of whom are indigenous.
Although traditional practices still exist, Reggie finds a marginalized community suffering from an addiction to alcohol and generations of institutionalized racism. Reggie meets the younger generation, living on the fringes of society. What hope do they have of a better life than the generations before them?
