'Pitch Black' is the story of British-born black footballers from the 1970s, when black footballers first came to prominence within the English game, to the present day, which sees them now make up some 30 per cent of English professional footballers. It tells the story of how profound changes in attitudes from UEFA, the FA and the media towards racism in the game came about, but does so, for the first time from the perspective of those who faced the poisonous stereotypes, the monkey chanting, the throwing of bananas, and the bullets in the post.
