Abstract

This paper will consider Dougie Young’s songs as expressions of social protest for a disenfranchised community. It will also consider his musical and political legacy. While he was not widely known outside of his own community in his lifetime, Young’s songs did inspire other Aboriginal songwriters working within a country music medium to write about political struggle, and thus drew a wider (whiter) to Aboriginal justice issues.
