Celebrate football heroes this Black History Month

By Premier League Primary Stars · Fri 16 October 2020

Open up discussions around ambition, diversity and equality with brand new KS2 resources: This is Everyone’s Game - Black Voices.

Containing a range of activity worksheets and engaging films, these resources are a great way to get classes talking this Black History Month and throughout the year. Our films feature Liverpool FC’s Divock Origi and Manchester City’s Demi Stokes in conversation with award-winning children’s author Sharna Jackson as they discuss their heritage, racism and their journey to playing football at the highest level. 

These resources support the Premier League’s #NoRoomForRacism initiative, a commitment to combatting discrimination and promoting equality, diversity and inclusion. 

We want your pupils to get involved and encourage others to challenge discrimination. Through completing our poster challenge in class or as a home activity, we would like pupils to show that there is No Room For Racism in football or anywhere else.

In November, we’re also launching more literacy resources for Key Stage 1 and 2, featuring illustrated stories of Divock Origi and Demi Stokes’ early lives and careers.

Share your class posters with us on Twitter @PLCommunities using #PLPrimaryStars and #NoRoomForRacism, or email us at for the chance to feature on You could also win one of our incredible Premier League Writing Stars poetry books, featuring a range of poems about diversity, written by pupils and famous friends of Premier League Primary Stars.
