Damian Johnson attended Hymers College from 1972 until 1976.  A keen ambassador for the school, he was able to help the school during Black History Month, giving his services as a speaker in a school assembly.

During his assembly, he spoke about his love of the school, his career as a sports presenter and about his new book titled Football's Champions of Change.  The book charts the history of the anti-racism movement in English football and beyond, shining a light on both the divisive and unifying power of the game.

After assembly, Damian took time out to visit The Eric Gordon Mallalieu Archive Library, where he donated a signed copy of his new book.
