Troy Deeney : Black History Matters Too | Channel 4 23 May 2022

Troy Deeney : Black History Matters Too | Channel 4

Footballer and current Birmingham City FC captain Troy Deeney has been campaigning to make the teaching of Black, Asian and minority ethnic histories and experiences mandatory in the school curriculum. He was at the forefront of the movement to get sportspeople to ‘take the knee’ in the wake of the murder of George Floyd, and is a prominent anti-racism campaigner. He believes passionately that education is a vital way not only to inform identities, but also to combat racist beliefs and stereotypes. But Troy has found himself frustrated in recent years by the lack of progress in getting the issue of what young people are taught in school – and how they are taught it – to the top of the agenda. In this eye-opening documentary, Troy sets out on a mission to find out why the teaching of diversity in our schools remains optional, and strives to change this. Troy meets people on both sides of the debate, and talks about his own troubled school experiences, inspiring support from prominent contributors such as boxer Anthony Joshua, actor David Harewood MBE, ex-footballer and pundit Micah Richards, musicians Big Narstie and DJ Cuppy and MP Layla Moran, as well as young activists, teachers and pupils campaigning for change. With an issue this important and divisive, it soon becomes clear to Troy that he’ll have to take his quest to the very top.
