Tell me Why by Archie Roach

Event Details

Not many have lived as many lives – from stolen child, teenage alcoholic, seeker, lover, father, musical and lyrical genius, to social advocate and First Nations leader – but it took almost a lifetime to find who he really was.

He is Archie Roach.

In recent years he faced the sudden death of his life partner and musical collaborator of 38 years, Ruby Hunter and went on to survive a debilitating stroke and lung cancer. Forcibly removed at only two from loving parents, six other siblings and his community, Roach’s early years were equally traumatic. He became a teenage alcoholic and drifted into destitution whilst searching for his identity and place. Tell Me Why, the title of his new Memoir (Simon and Schuster), is an intimate, moving and often confronting account of his resilience and strength of spirit, and also of a great love story.
