On this day, 20 years ago Nicky Winmar famously lifted his uniform, whilst being pelted with racial taunts from some unforgiving football fans and said “I’m black and I’m proud to be black!”.
This moment famously captured by photographer Wayne Ludbey, Winmar’s heroic gesture and legacy of taking a stand against racism, is being honoured in an exhibition opening today by he National Sports Museum.
