From the publisher:

This inspirational book charts the history of the anti-racism movement in English football and beyond, shining a light on both the divisive and unifying power of the beautiful game.

There are also commentaries and insights from coaches, referees as well as grassroots activists who are prominent voices in the mainstream andsocial media.

Features inspiring vox pops from young, modern-day aspiring players and fans from different ethnic backgrounds, explaining their experiences and their own battle (and triumphs) to be treated equally on the pitch and in society.
