Black Fella White Fella, by Neil Murray

Blackfella, whitefella
It doesn’t matter what your colour
As long as you a true fella
As long as you a real fella

Blackfella Whitefella

Neil Murray was living in Papunya in 1982 when he wrote the lyrics that would become Blackfella Whitefella. His fellow Warumpi Band bandmates loved it and subsequently recorded it.

Now Blackfella Whitefella has a new life as a picture book text, with the lyrics illustrated by schoolchildren from around Australia in a variety of styles and media.

With a percentage of the profits going to Ian Thorpe’s “Fountain for Youth” project and with the song and illustrations promoting a wodnerful message of harmony, this is an excellent book which belongs in every school and home.
