    Mrs Asbury Talk
    Today a lady came to talk to us about her grandmother who was a aboriginal. A fact that I learnt was that her grandmother’s name was Molly and she was in the Stolen Generation and Molly and her sister got taken away and became a slave for someone. Another thing I learnt was that they gathered up all the aboriginals and made them not humans but flora and fauna (plants and animals). When molly left she grew up and never saw her sister again, but she did see her brother. Molly had two children and she had a husband but they divorced and she was left with two children to raise by herself. So she sent one off to a boys house where they learnt things. Back then the Aboriginals were not considered very smart and the white people were. I found Mrs Asbury very interesting to listen to.
