Formatted Abstract/Summary
Two decades ago, footballer Nicky Winmar made a powerful statement.

On April 17, 1993 at the conclusion of the Collingwood-St Kilda game at Victoria Park, Winmar turned to Collingwood fans, raised his St Kilda jumper, pointed at his stomach and said “I’m black and I’m proud to be black” in response to racial taunts.
From today until the end of the year, the National Sports Museum will reflect on the impact of Winmar’s protest with a new showcase, Black and Proud: A stand against racism.

The exhibition features never-before-seen images captured of Winmar before and after his momentous gesture, as well as a selection of images and objects that demonstrate how the moment continues to be relevant today.
