A new formation

£10.99

A New Formation is an inventive and highly original analysis of the contributions that Black British footballers have made to Black British culture.

Calum Jacobs and his co-contributors – including authors Musa Okwonga and Aniefiok Ekpoudom and sports broadcaster Jeanette Kwakye – eschew the standard frameworks of trauma and oppression that are foisted upon Black narratives. Instead, they draw upon broader social and cultural history to examine Black footballers in contexts larger than themselves. By engaging with the subtle connections between football and Black cultural expression, A New Formation reveals the vibrancy and nuance of contemporary Black life in Britain.

Featuring interviews with Andy Cole, Ian Wright and Anita Asante.
