Through the prism of sport and conversations with its legends,
Hope Powell, Michael Holding explains how racism dehumanises people; how it works to achieve that end; how it has been ignored by history and historians; and what it is like to be treated differently just because of the colour of your skin.
Rarely can a rain delay in a cricket match have led to anything like the moment when Holding spoke out in the wake of the
protests about the racism he has suffered and has seen all around him throughout his life. But as he spoke, he sought not only to
propose a way forward
that inspired so many. Within minutes, he was receiving calls from famous sports stars from around the world offering to help him to spread the message further.
