A Boy's Short Life

Sat 22 Feb 2014

Born Warren Braedon in a camp outside Alice Springs and adopted by a white Perth family, 19-year-old Louis Johnson was murdered in North Beach as he walked home from a party because of the colour of his skin.

Anna Haebich, Jim Morrison and Louis' adoptive father Bill Johnson speak with Terri-ann White about what we have learned from the circumstances of Louis Johnson’s life and death.
