Redfern oval was full of blackfellers: Allan Madden

Redfern Oval on Saturday nights used to be a big meeting place, recalls Uncle Allan Madden. Sometimes people were “charged up” and it was also the place where planning for many of the big organisations was discussed: the Aboriginal Medical Service and Legal Service. The Palms Milk Bar, just up the road, was another gathering place.
