Closing Monday night’s Q+A show on ABC, which focused on Indigenous deaths in custody and the global Black Lives Matter movement, actor and writer Meyne Wyatt delivered a powerful speech taken from his autobiographical 2019 play City of Gold. « ‘How are we to move forward if we dwell on the past?’ That’s your privilege. You get to ask that question, » he told the audience. « You want your blacks quiet and humble. ‘You can’t stand up, you have to sit down.’ … Silence is violence. Complacency is complicity. I don’t want to be quiet. I don’t want to be humble. I don’t want to sit down. »
