Whites vs Blacks How Football Changed A Nation
On the 16 May 1979, an extraordinary game of professional football took place that if played today, would very possibly cause uproar, mass protest and a media frenzy. As part of Len Cantello’s testimonial at West Bromwich Albion, an all-white team took on a side comprised solely of black players – ‘whites against blacks’. For the white team, it was nothing more than a lighthearted gimmick, but for the black players it represented so much more. It was a game they had to win. Racism was rife and black people were far from welcome on the pitch, in the stands or in the boardroom.
