Talking About Celia . . . is a montage of memories and pictures taking the reader inside an Aboriginal community and inside the life as an extraordinary Murria woman. People like Celia Smith are remembered through stories told and re-told by their family and community. Among the many things remembered about Celia Smith's life commitment to justice and compassion, are her lobbying for Gurinkji land rights in the distant north-west; walking the community with bags of food and loose coins she would give to those in need; speaking in court for a young mother on manslaughter charges; running cardgames and dances and always caring for her family. Celia Smith left her mark on south-east Queensland communities, and there are also many others around Australia who will remember her.
