This week in our first Black History conversation is with a living cricket legend, Michael Holding.
Michael Holding is an elder, a wise connection, and leader of our experience as Black people in this country. We talk about his long career in cricket, his experience post-George Floyd and what he remembers about his career. He retired in September 2021.
He wrote Why We Kneel, How We Rise - a sober, densely researched account of racial discrimination, partially told through discussions with leading athletes including Usain Bolt, Thierry Henry, Michael Johnson and Naomi Osaka.
