A member of the Aboriginals in Australia, Charles Perkins was exposed to poverty and racial discrimination from the time that he was a child. During that time, aboriginals were not allowed to move around freely, or even live in the region of their choice. This developed a deep hatred for the white Australians in his mind. As a young man, he pursued a career in football, and even travelled to Liverpool in England, training at the 'Everton' football club. Till his death, he served as the Chairperson of 'Australian Indoor Soccer Federation'. At the age of 29, he began actively protesting against the treatment meted out to the aboriginals by the Australian government, which consisted mainly of whites. Not only did he play a major role in the 'Freedom Ride', but also saw to it that aboriginals were included in the census, according to a change made in the constitution. He was known for his strong opinions against the whites, and his bitter comments about their racial practices. He has been recognized for his efforts to abolish the ill-treatment faced by indigenous groups of people in Australia. He has received several honorary doctorates and many documentaries have been based on his life. This activist is revered by many, even after his death, for his contribution to the development of indigenous people in Australia
