Anton Clifford-Motopi on finding his full name

Conversations (Anton Clifford-Motopi)


In this podcast, Anton Clifford-Motopi recounts what it was like growing up in his large, caring, adoptive family in the seaside town of Redcliff in Queensland, Australia.

While at home Anton felt as if he belonged, at school he felt out of place, different. This was because he looked different, especially as he had “weird, fuzzy hair.”

As a teenager, Anton was told his father was a Torres Strait Islander. Decades later he found out his father lived 12,000km away in a small African country.

Anton Clifford-Motopi has recently published his debut children’s novel “To and Fro” about a 12 year old boy, Sam, who thinks he’s weird looking.
