Kevin Rudd - Ten Years After the Apology
NITV  |  February 7, 2018

It has been 10 years since Kevin Rudd made his famous speech on February 13, 2008, in the federal Parliament when he formally apologised to Indigenous Australians for the forced removal of children from their families, also known as the Stolen Generations. It was a historic moment in the nation's history and a moment that Indigenous Australians had been waiting on for many years. Karla Grant sits down with the former Australian prime minister as he reflects on his life, time in office, the apology, the current state of Indigenous affairs, and what needs to be done to see real improvements in the lives of our First Nations people.
