The Uncomfortable Truth About Racism

by John Barnes - £20.00  Headline Publishing Group (2021)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781472290380 | ISBN 10: 1472290380

An eloquent and thought-provoking book on racism and prejudice by the Liverpool and England football legend John Barnes.
 
John Barnes spent the first dozen years of his life in Jamaica before moving to the UK with his family in 1975. Six years later he was a professional footballer, distinguishing himself for Watford, Liverpool and England, and in the process becoming this country's most prominent black player.
 
Barnes is now an articulate and captivating social commentator on a broad range of issues, and in The Uncomfortable Truth About Racism he tackles head-on the issues surrounding prejudice with his trademark intelligence and authority.
 
By vividly evoking his personal experiences, and holding a mirror to this country's past, present and future, Barnes provides a powerful and moving testimony. The Uncomfortable Truth About Racism will help to inform and advance the global conversation around society's ongoing battle with the awful stain of prejudice.
