Through the prism of sport and conversations with its legends, including Usain Bolt , Adam Goodes , Thierry Henry , Michael Johnson, Naomi Osaka, Hope Powell and others, Michael Holding explains how racism dehumanizes 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.
