I've been living in Redfern for 16 years: Billy McPherson

“There’s light at the end of the tunnel - and that light is you.” Billy McPherson has many thoughts for young Kooris. Originally from Queensland, he’s been an actor (appeared in “Gungies”), a community worker with the City of Sydney Council and Lights, Camera, Action, a boxing trainer at PCYC in South Sydney, labourer and didgeridoo player. He also comments on how people have come together to make Redfern a community with structures like National Centre of Indigenous Excellence and the Alex Park Community School.
