Walter Tull - His Footballing Legacy

Presented by Folkestone Museum

Thu 24 Jan

100 years after the tragic death in WW1 of Folkestone-born Walter Tull - one of the first black professional footballers - we ask what is Walter's legacy? How has the game changed for footballers of colour; do they still face racism and do institutional barriers to career progression still exist for players, coaches and managers?

A series of presentations and a panel discussion as part of Walter Tull: His Life and Legacy at Folkestone Museum supported by Shepway Sports Trust. Distinguished ex-players will be joined by key campaigners working in the field of equality and diversity in sport from FIFA, Manchester United, the PFA and sports journalism.

Thursday 24 January, 7.30pm
Tickets £5
