Ros Kidd was awarded a doctorate by Griffith University in 1994 for her groundbreaking research into government control of Aboriginal people in Queensland between 1840 and 1988. She has published four books: The Way We Civilise; Black Lives, Government Lies; Trustees on Trial; and Hard Labour, Stolen Wages. She has assisted Native Title claimants with historical research reports, and works with Aboriginal people in pursuit of justice from the government for illegally underpaid wages and lost savings.
