Join us for an exploration of slavery in the 1800's and how that continues to impact the representation of diversity within sport today.

Event Details

We will be joined by panel members who will share their expertise in Black British history and slavery, then we will hear about the experience within professional international football and finally we will journey to the current day tackling male-dominated sports and whether Black Lives Matter will make a difference in the industry.
