To mark Black History Month, Sky Sports speaks to some of the pioneers who braved abuse and changed English football forever.

England’s first black footballer Viv Anderson and West Brom legend Brendon Batson reveal the racism that confronted them in an often hostile society and at stadiums where hate regularly poured down from the terraces.

Football’s ongoing problems with racism even today are underlined by Liverpool and England U17 World Cup winner Rhian Brewster, who was racially abused five times in seven months, with little done to punish his abusers.

Finally, Batson, Anderson and Brewster give their thoughts on what can be done to erase racism from the game for good.
