    Award-winning tome on racism inside and outside of sports

    Through the prism of sport and conversations with its legends, including Thierry Henry, Michael Johnson and Naomi Osaka, 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. Russell Holden is our reviewer of Holding’s Why We Kneel, How We Rise (Simon & Schuster), and he recognizes and appreciates the significance of Holden’s message.
