AANHPI Heritage Month How A Sustained Booing Campaign Ended the Career of Sports Legend Adam Goodes
The Australian Dream tells the story of sports legend Adam Goodes and the abrupt end to his career in the Australian Football League (AFL). His love for the sport is an homage to his indigenous culture, which created the first football game known as Marn Grook. But when he objected to racial abuse from fans, Goodes became the target of a sustained booing campaign that drove him from the game. His story raises critical issues of race, identity and belonging in contemporary Australia.
