Few people have lived as many lives as Archie Roach. From stolen child, teenage alcoholic, seeker, lover, father, musical and lyrical genius, to social advocate and First Nations leader. Yet through all of this, it has taken almost a lifetime to find who he really is. 

He is Archie Roach.

His new memoir Tell Me Why is an intimate, moving and often confronting account of his resilience and strength of spirit. It’s an extraordinary odyssey of love and heartbreak, family and community, survival and renewal and the healing power of music.

Roach voices the joy, pain and hope he found on his path to become the legendary singersongwriter and storyteller that he is today.

Presented during NAIDOC Week. 

“As a member of the Stolen Generations, Roach had a direct line to the pain and suffering indigenous families endured when children were taken from them. He condensed those emotions into a few minutes of music that stands as one of the great Australian humanitarian artistic statements.” —The Australian

“In the best singer-songwriter tradition, Charcoal Lane is deeply moving in both personal and political terms” — US Rolling Stone

80 minutes with no interval.
